    This is a question best addressed to an attorney who specializes in social Security law, but I believe that a person loses his benefits while incarcerated in prison, but not while on the outside.

    My guess is that while in prison they would not be entitled to benefits, as the SSI payment is to compensate for inability to work. You need to re-post this question to a SS benefits attorney panel, not criminal law.
