As of July 1, 2018, the maximum payment for Supplemental Aid to the Blind (SAB) cash grants is $750.00 per month. Payments to persons eligible for a cash grant may be in the form of a check mailed to the participant or a direct deposit to the participant’s checking or savings account. This is the participant’s option; however, the participant must have an active bank account in order to use the direct deposit (IM-20) option.

If the SAB participant is not in a nursing home the grant is the difference between the participant’s SSI payments and the SAB maximum grant amount. Refer to 0415.005.05 SAB Claimant in a Nursing Home, if a claimant is in a nursing institution or enters a nursing institution.

If the SAB participant’s case was previously converted to SSI-SP or SP Only in January 1974, refer to the SP Manual for options in determining grant amount.
