Usually anyone who meets the SDP suspension criteria will already have individual
benefits suspended under the routine prisoner suspension rules (LAF S7 RFST PRISON).
This is true because the first criteria for SDP suspension is that the individual
has to have been confined in a jail, prison, or other penal facility pursuant to a
conviction of a criminal offense.
For Individuals confined in Illinois, Minnesota, or Wisconsin, before reinstating
benefits to anyone whose benefits have been suspended under routine prisoner provisions,
you should ask the beneficiary for both a current mailing and residence address. If
the current mailing or residence address is a mental institution, you must determine
if the person meets the SDP suspension criteria, per GN 02607.350 for confinements beginning April 2000 and later.
If benefits cannot be reinstated because the individual now meets the SDP suspension
criteria, send a 2795 Prisoner Processing Exclusion Fax Request Form per GN 02607.995 to the appropriate PSC requesting that the RFST code be changed from PRISON to PREDTR.
