Does social security automatically know if you are sent to jail to stop their disability payments or does the inmate have to TELL them?

Sometimes they find out and sometimes they don't, but if they do you'll have to show them paperwork from the jail(release dates). So lets say you were in jail from Nov. 19th 2008 until Jan 12th 2009, you'll will have to pay back those 3 months. They don't prorate the months. It doesn't matter if you spent 1 day or a month the want the whole check back for that month. They will set up a payment plan for the overpayment and want their money back within a year. They may even try to take away future checks away to pay back the overpayment. But if you tell them you need the check for rent and etc they will give you the check minus the amount they want monthly. If I were you I would tell them so you don't completely lose your benefits and get more charges from SS like fraud charges.

<p>they took my gf's away automatically- she is still incarcerated-- is it easy or hard to get the payments started again after she gets out??</p>

"K" its easy just go down to SS office with papers from the jail stating when you went to jail and when you got out. Then your benefits will start again. hope this helps if not send me a note and maybe i can help u further
