    Default Will I Lose My Disability Benefits if I Am Convicted of a Felony

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: NC
    I am currently collecting Social Security Disability benefits. I have been charged with felony possession of cocaine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphenalia. Will I lose my disability benefits if I am convicted of these charges? I live in North Carolina.

    Default Re: Will I Lose My Disability Benefits if I Am Convicted of a Felony

    And I quote:

    "
    Somewhat simplifying, there are four ways a felony conviction can have an impact on Social Security disability benefits:

    You cannot get disability benefits while incarcerated for a felony;

    You cannot get disability benefits while fleeing felony prosecution or a felony warrant or violating probation or parole;

    You cannot get disability benefits if your disability arose or was aggravated while you were committing a felony;

    You cannot get survivor's benefits if you made yourself a widow(er) or orphan by killing your spouse or parent(s).

    (I am a lawyer and I am a board certified disability specialist, but I am not your lawyer. )"

    what is your disability and what is the expected penalty, if you are found guilty?
