How Warrants Can Affect Your Social Security Benefits
Applications for Social Security Disability benefits and SSI benefits have been escalating for many years. This may have something to do with the denial rates on initial applications being over 60%. Many people give up too easily after an initial denial and fail to re-apply or take the next step in the application process.
Additional measures to cut costs may also be a reason the SSA has become industrious in their review of criminal records for those applying for Social Security benefits. If you have had a warrant for your arrest, you may be concerned how this could impact your ability to obtain benefits.

Keeping Your Record Clear
There are steps you can take if a warrant in your name is interfering with your ability to successfully apply for benefits or your benefits have been interrupted and you have been ordered to reimburse past benefits. Sometimes these warrants have been incorrectly issued in your name and getting this corrected can solve the problem. If you were charged and found not guilty, your charges were dismissed, or you were cleared, you may be able to show this and leverage it to avoid any potential damage to your application.
It can be very disturbing to find that your benefits are being denied or withdrawn because of a warrant. There are many possible options to fight this, depending on the details of the case.
