1722. Felonious and Intentional Homicide

1722.1 How does the felonious and intentional homicide of the worker affect benefits?

You cannot be entitled to benefits on the worker's earnings record if you were convicted of the felonious and intentional homicide of the worker. Further, you are considered as non-existent when we decide the rights of other persons entitled to benefits on the worker's record.

1722.2 What evidence do you submit if you were convicted or acquitted of the felonious homicide of the worker?

If you were either acquitted or convicted of the felonious homicide of the worker, submit either:

  1. A certification of the final verdict or court record; or

  2. A statement from the proper official advising of the nature of the case.

Before Freezing Credit, Consider Opening Social Security Online Account

A report states that, in order to establish an online Social Security account at ssa.gov, the Social Security Administration must have access to your credit report to verify your identification.

Thus, before freezing your credit (to mitigate the risk of recent hacks), consider setting up an account at ssa.gov first.
