Evaluate a previously undeveloped breakpoint when it is reported to determine whether
it affects the receipt of inside ISM. See SI
00835.510 C. for instructions on evaluating breakpoints.
If the breakpoint might affect the ISM, complete an SSA-8006-F4 to determine if the
value of the ISM has changed. See SI 00835.600 for information on form SSA-8006-F4. Follow the documentation rules in 1.-5. above
depending on the answers received. Any change in ISM is effective with the breakpoint
effective month (SI 00835.510B.4.).
In connection with a redetermination requiring completion of the SSA-8006-F4 (SI 00835.520), reevaluate the existence and amount of inside ISM as of the month the redetermination
is initiated. When there has been no allegation of change, check to see if the ISM
has changed due to the gradual effects of usage (e.g., the household now uses more
electricity than at the last review) or inflation/deflation (e.g., the utility company
now charges higher rates for power during the day, and lower rates for off-peak periods).
Also redevelop the ISM charged if an individual requests a reevaluation of the household
operating expenses and contributions (and no breakpoint has occurred).
See SI 00835.515 for an explanation of gradual ISM changes and the effective month of these changes.
Document the file according to the rules in 1.-5. above depending on the answers received.
