The Board will accept applications from incarcerated claimants. However, the claim will be administratively closed pending receipt of confirmation from the claimant within ten (10) days of the end of the incarceration (release date). This policy is in effect regardless of the reason for the incarceration. The reason does not have to be related to the incident in the claim.
If the Board becomes aware that a claimant is incarcerated and a claim is pending, the claim will be closed under the above policy.
