Use these procedures when an SSI applicant reports having an outstanding warrant or

Ask if they are wanted for a crime that is a felony or has violated a condition of
parole/probation since the effective date of the application.
If yes, enter the filing date of the application in the “Date Fled” field and explain
the entry in the Statement of Person remarks segment on the AWRF or AWRP screen.
If no, show “?” for each item that they do not know. This will cause the MSSICS “Print
App” function to print the proper statement for the individual to sign. In the Statement
of Person Remarks enter a remark to fit the case situation. EXAMPLE: BALTIMORE CITY COURT ISSUED A WARRANT FOR MY ARREST BECAUSE I VIOLATED A CONDITION
OF MY PAROLE. I DO NOT KNOW WHEN THE WARRANT WAS ISSUED.
Attempt to determine dates of ineligibility by contacting by phone or mail the agency
or court responsible for the warrant.
Enter the dates provided by the agency or court in the applicable fields on the AWRF
or AWRP screens.
If the agency or court is unable or unwilling to supply the information, place the
applicant in payment status H70 and enter in Remarks on the SSR, “INDIV REPTS WARRANT
- [NAME OF WARRANT ISSUING AGENCY]; WARRANT INFO UNAVAILABLE; REFERRED TO OIG.”
Refer the case for further investigation to OIG using the fugitive felon mailbox address,
^Fugitive Felon. In the Subject Line of the email, include your District Office (DO)
code. Include in your referral a remark to alert OIG that an SSI claim is being held
pending their determination. Also include available information about the warrant
and the purported crime. In a disability case delay the release of the medical information
to DDS until it is clear that the individual is potentially eligible for some period
of time unless it is a concurrent claim.
