Good afternoon, Thanks for the clarification. You will only have your social security benefits suspended if you are incarcerated after conviction and your incarceration lasts longer than 30 consecutive days. Even if you are incarcerated for----say 60 days, after your release your benefits will start up again. Also keep in mind that fugitive felons are not eligible to receive benefits from social security either. However, if you have not been charged with a felony, being a fugitive from justice (by leaving the jurisdiction) will not result in your benefits being suspended. You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.I hope that I have been able to fully answer your question. Please be so kind as to rate my service to you. That is the only way I am credited for assisting you.I wish you and yours the best in 2016,Doug
