Many cases are determined eligible on the disability factor because of receipt of SSI or RSDI. However, this determination becomes invalid when the claimant:
- becomes ineligible for SSI or RSDI for any reason; or
- transfers to non-disability based SSI or RSDI.
In either situation, obtain medical information and submit immediately to MRT along with the Social Information Summary (IM-61) to establish the claimant’s eligibility on this factor.
EXCEPTION: An individual whose SSI benefits are suspended due to a balance in an Achieving Better Life Experience (ABLE) account in excess of $100,000 shall be treated for purposes of MO HealthNet as if the individual continued to be receiving payment of SSI benefits.
