Usually anyone who meets the SDP suspension criteria will already have 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 state penal facility pursuant to a conviction of a criminal
Before reinstating benefits to individuals confined in the District of Columbia or
Virginia whose benefits are suspended under routine prisoner provisions, you should
ask the beneficiary for both a current mailing and a residence address. If the current
mailing or residence address is a mental institution, you must determine if the individual
meets the SDP suspension criteria outlined in GN 02607.350.
If reinstatement of benefits cannot occur because the individual now meets the SDP
suspension criteria, send a Prisoner 2795 FAX to the appropriate PSC requesting to change the RFST code to PREDTR per GN 02607.995.
The BENEFIT line of the MBR displays an RFST code of PREDTR for all individuals whose
benefits are suspended because the individual meets the suspension criteria outlined
in GN PHI02607.360A.
