Relativistic arbitrary spin Hamiltonians are shown to obey the algebraic structure of supersymmetric quantum system if their odd and even parts commute. This condition is identical to that required for the exactness of the Foldy-Wouthuysen transformation. Applied to a massive charged spin-1 particle in a constant magnetic field, supersymmetric quantum mechanics necessarily requires a gyromagnetic factor g = 2.
