To the best of your knowledge, are you currently under investigation by a court, regulatory agency, employer, or other public or private entity in which your professional conduct is at issue including any instances of “Prohibited Conduct” as defined in Section E of SSA’s Professional Ethics Policy?

SSA has the sole discretion to determine eligibility based on the disclosed information.

When candidates disclose an ongoing investigation, SSA generally will deem the candidate temporarily ineligible for further consideration pending the outcome of the investigation.
