0720.010.10 SP GRANT DETERMINATION FOR AB SP-ONLY RECIPIENTS

For AB SP-Only recipients, determine the grant by using one of the following computation methods:

  1. Follow Steps 1-3 of SP Grant Determination for OAA/PTD SP-Only to calculate income and subtract the totals from the December 1973 EIL;OR
  2. Complete an SAB need determination; and if there is need, grant the BP maximum.Use the computation which is most beneficial to the recipient.

    NOTE: If there is no need on the budget but the claimant meets all other AB eligibility factors, transfer the claimant to Blind Pension if it is more beneficial than restoring SP-Only conversion status. Use the computation which most benefits the recipient.
