Can a convicted felon be a payee for social security?
It depends on the circumstances. I am a rep payee for two people and I am a convicted felon.

For a convicted felon to be licensed by the state is HIGHLY unliklely.
An otherwise eligible convicted felon may receive Social Security disability or retirement benefits when he or she is not incarcerated for more than 30 days and has no outstan…ding warrants. Social Security will not pay cash benefits to anyone living in a prison, jail, nursing home or other tax-supported facility; however, if the person is eligible for retirement benefits under SSA guidelines, he or she may receive them after release. Payees are not entitled to back benefits for the time spent incarcerated. Yes, yes they can.
A felon may receive SSDI benefits if he or she is not incarcerated for more than 30 days and has no outstanding warrants. Social Security will not pay cash benefits to anyon…e living in a prison, jail, nursing home or other tax-supported facility; however, if the person remains eligible for disability under SSA guidelines, payments resume after release. Payees are not entitled to back benefits for the time spent incarcerated.
The code of ethics for social workers requires that a worker have not engaged in unlawful or criminal acts, therefore all social workers are required to undergo a back ground …check for felony convictions. So the answer would that I was told by the state of NY is no, unless the governor pardons a person. Sorry we will have to find another field, I chose certification mechanical it was one of the few fields that allow felons to work in. I am not sure as for the state of New York, but I know in the state of Ohio a convicted felon can become a social worker or counselor. I am currently working towards my masters in mental health counseling, and I will begin working with the advocacy office soon, because there will be some bumps to overcome to get there. However, I know at least two people whom did not get granted their pardons, and they were working social workers and a counselor. There are certain supervisions which apply, unfournately not being able to work with juveniles I am pretty sure is one, but it is possible as long as they can show new good character, and explain the cause of their lapse in judgement. But I am sure it takes a great deal of work and stress to get there!
Someone who has plead guilty to or is found guilty of a felony. The judge then sentences the offender to a term of incarceration of more than one year duration. This term of i…ncarceration can be suspended and the offender not actually go to prison, but it would still be a conviction.
of course :)
Yes, if they meet the requirements for Social Security, they are eligible.
A convicted felon can, of course, write a will. Their property isn't forfeit after death, unless they owe some particular sum of money. They need to follow all the rules reg…ular people do when writing wills (having it witnessed, etc.,) because they *are* normal people in this sense. Unless it resulted in financial debt, the crime has no impact on their estate.
yes you can get married but the felon on probation will not be allowed around the other felon due to the probation arrangement Update: If you are going to marry a felon, mos…t likely your probation officer probably already approved it and most cases you will be able to marry and live with that felon.
one inch=2.5cm how many inches are there in 24.8cm?
sure Actually, the answer is usually yes, but occassionally, requirements of parole will restrict felons associating with other felons.
No, this is usually not allowed. Actually, it really isn't a problem anymore. I am a convicted felon as is my other half. We do live together, have for almost 6 years now…. He was released 04/08 and I, 12/08, so we are on parole together and actually have the same parole officer. When I checked with the supervisor when I was first released, the response was - and I quote - "There's just too many of you out there for that to be enforced. We have several siblings on parole at one time. The only stipulation nowadays is that you cannot be co-defendents." I'm guessing that's cause they think you're likely to commit crimes with that person, after all you did once already, right? Keep in mind though, I'm speaking on what was told to me, I do not know what the "LAW" says, or if it varies from county to county. I think it's partially dependant on your p.o., the office you're out of, etc.. Jokker
In Criminal Law
May not run for public office. Added: May not possess a firearm or explosives (federal law). ALSO: Although most states tend to treat convicted felons in a SOMEWHAT similar… manner, however, some states (under the unique circumstances set by THOSE states) may restore certain privileges to convicted felons that other states do not. BE AWARE that these restored/limited rights do not apply to them in any other state other than the one that restored them. (example: If state 'A" restored a felons right to hunt with a firearm, the felon could NOT take the firearm to hunt across the state line in state 'B.' In state 'B' he could be legally charged as a felon in possession of a firearm.)
In State Laws
The difference between a felon & a convicted felon is past & present. Generally, if one is incarcerated in a prison or detention center is called a "convicted" felon. A felon …is anyone who, in part, commits a felony offense. After the incarceration that has been sentenced is served that person is considered a felon or ex-con (ex-convict.).
Answer The adult whom the minor wishes to have appointed as their SS payee should contact the SSA office in their area. They will be required to fill out th…e appropriate documents, be interviewed as will the minor SS beneficiary as to why they are requesting the change. If the SSA finds the request valid they may choose to honor it. If the request is rejected, the chosen adult can attempt to have the change made through the court system. That could be a very lengthy and expensive process with no guarantees.

In Texas Is it legal for a person residing with a convicted felon to possess a firearm in the home if firearm is secured beyond the access of the felon?
You need to contact the police or an attorney on this one... Here's CA law - 12021. (a) (1) any felon ...who owns, purchases, receives, or has in his or her possession or un…der his or her custody or control any firearm http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=pen&group=12001-13000&file=12020-12040 See Also CA Civil Code 3526. No man is responsible for that which no man can control. How can the felon control what you do with your life? You might want to check out the law.com dictionary at http://www.steveshorr.com/dictionary.htm For the most part, for a convicted felon to be arrested and charged with "Felon in possession of a firearm" there are factors which must be present. The felon must be in "care/custody/control" of the firearm at the time of the arrest. If the felon is home alone and a firearm (owned by you) is left upon a table; he would be deemed in "care" of the firearm, and thus able to be charged. If the felon is borrowing your car and there is a firearm left in a backpack in the backseat, he would be in "custody" of that firearm, even if he didn't know it was back there. If the felon is holding your firearm to exam it, he is in "control" and could be arrested. Now, if you keep your firearms in a gunsafe or otherwise locked up in a way where the felon couldn't get access to them, but are IN the same house. . .most times no, they couldn't be charged. I say "most times" as an officer with an ax to grind can always arrest the felon on the charge; but it would be up to the DA as if they want to try the case, and if the arrest will likely lead to a conviction. The first answer honestly contains the best advice: Seek out a lawyer and run the situation past them. - - UPDATE From jeb_oi812 Yes it is illegal in Texas for a felon to have a firearm in the home or car whether the felon has immediate access to the firearm or not. Unless that firearm is a black powder gun, then one must check with the local government, police, sheriff and such as well as find out if the crime for which they were convicted allows for them to posses even a black powder firearm.
