USE THE FLOWCHART ONLY AS A DEVELOPMENTAL TOOL.
The flowchart represents the minimum required development for situations when a claimant
lives in the same permanent LA throughout a month. Unstated income or other factors
may mandate additional development. For First-of-the-month (FOM) Residence and ISM
Determinations, see SI 00835.500.
NOTE: Even where this flowchart requires the adjudicator to
“consider ISM,” ISM may not be chargeable.
