My client had been receiving SSI prior to being incarcerated. He is now out of jail and would like me to get his benefits turned back on. He has not had it for 2 years now - do we have to start all over again?

Answer

For applicants that have received SSI prior to incarceration, a new application must be submitted if the applicant was incarcerated for more than 12 months.
