Advise institutions of their payee responsibilities regarding proper use and conservation
of benefits and the effect accumulated funds have upon SSI resource limits and continued
eligibility for SSI benefits. The FO will contact institutional officials if it is
aware that the personal funds of a beneficiary are being conserved and will shortly
exceed $1,600. Where funds are accumulating for a number of beneficiaries without
regard to the beneficiaries' needs, work with the regional programs staff and the
institutional officials to resolve the problem.
