MSA BASIS - AGE 65 OR OLDER

ISSUE DATE: 12/2014

MFIP, DWP, SNAP, GA, GRH:
No provisions.


MSA:

People have a basis of eligibility for MSA if they are age 65 or older or will be age 65 in the application month, and are either receiving SSI benefits or would be eligible for SSI benefits EXCEPT for excess income.

Non-SSI participants (due to excess income) who are age 65 or older, and blind or disabled, may choose their MSA basis of eligibility. The basis may affect the disregards allowed from actual income. Help the client decide which eligibility basis is most advantageous. See 0013.09.06 (MSA Basis - Blind), 0013.09.09 (MSA - Disabled Age 18 and Older). See 0018 (Determining Net Income).
