A similar rule to 1. applies to payments by State agencies in conformity with the
requirements of the other assistance titles of the SS Act.
However, where the payment is made by a State or local welfare agency but does not
involve any of the assistance titles of the SS Act, RS 01301.100C.1. is applicable only if, under the State or local law governing such payment, there is no restriction
as to how the payment may be used.
If there is a restriction, the payment may not be considered the recipient's own funds
unless it was based on his/her individual needs (i.e., intended for his/her own support).
If the support of other individuals (including the claimant) was considered, the recipient
is, in effect, acting as a payee on their behalf and any amounts used for the support
of such individuals cannot be considered as a contribution by the recipient.
