Take the following steps when an SSI-SP case is determined eligible under SAB criteria AND a deficiency payment is due:
- Determine the amount of SSI actually paid to the recipient in each month for which a deficiency payment is being sought.
- Subtract the amounts of SSI determined in Step 1 from the maximum SAB benefit for the corresponding month.
- Request the deficiency payment up to a maximum of 60 months.
Initiate restitution if the recomputations indicate an overpayment due to the SP-Only/SSI-SP recipient’s failure to notify the agency in a timely manner of a change in circumstances (refer to the Legal Aspects Manual).
