Supplemental Aid to the Blind (SAB) Manual

0410.020.00 SAB Need Determination

After exclusions, standard exemptions, and other deductions are allowed, total the remaining monthly income. Deduct this amount from the Consolidated Standard. If there is a remainder, the claimant meets the SAB need determination. If there is no remainder, the claimant is ineligible for SAB based on need.

If the SAB claimant receives a Federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payment, it is not considered income in determining need.
