If answers to questions on the SSA-8001-BK indicate probable ineligibility but the
applicant appears to be eligible based on additional information, document the application
and explain why the claimant is likely to be eligible.
EXAMPLE: The claimant answers that her name is on a savings account with $5,300 in it. She
explains that the account is a joint account with her mother and all the money is
her mother's; her own name is on the account simply to make it easier for her to pay
her mother's bills. The claims representative adds this information to “Remarks.”
