Blind Pension

0535.000.00 Location of BP Case Records

Blind Pension (BP) case records will normally be kept in the county in which the claimant resides. If the claimant has a guardian or conservator who resides in another county, the two counties involved should work together to determine whether it would be more beneficial to have the case file in the guardian’s or claimant’s county of residence. In IMU5 the pay county should reflect the county where the case record is maintained and the residence county should reflect the county where the claimant resides. The mailing address will be the address of the guardian or conservator.
