MFIP, DWP, SNAP, MSA, GA:
For SSI clients, allow income deductions from the SSI Federal Benefit Rate (FBR) if the SSI monthly benefit is reduced, except when it is reduced due to receipt of other income. Deductions can include guardianship or conservator fees established by the court, representative payee fees allowed by the Social Security Administration (SSA) or other programs, SSI recoupment or RSDI repayments, support ordered by court, and similar types of deductions.
For non-SSI clients, follow the procedures for SSI clients. In addition, allow income deductions for other mandatory fees or payments incurred and not deducted elsewhere. For MFIP clients, also allow MFIP recoupment. For non-SSI clients, count income that is actually available.
