Social Security Disability: Arrest Warrants
Have your disability benefits been denied?
Plainly put, the Social Security Administration may not pay social security disability benefits to individuals who have had an outstanding arrest warrant for more than 30 days continuously. There are some slight exceptions to this rule, however, and it is important to be aware of the rules and regulations related to your benefits so that you can be prepared for possible conflicts such as this. In many circumstances, however, a well-versed lawyer with DAA may be able to provide you with the tools necessary to regain your lost benefits.
As such with any other claims denial, the first thing to do is to file an appeal. There are a number of good-cause exceptions that may be granted by the Social Security Administration, such as in cases where the violator is exonerated by the court in some form or fashion. Additionally, those who have an arrest warrant for a non-violent crime that is not related to drugs may be exempted from non-payment. Clearing your warrant is another effective means of resolving the matter, although there is a definite chance of incarceration when attempting to clear an existing warrant and this may bring about additional issues.
