If a claim has been entered on MSSICS prior to May 1996, but is being adjudicated
on or after May 1, 1996, and a rental subsidy is involved, a new living arrangement
iteration must be input effective May 1, 1996. Follow the instructions below for MSSICS
REMINDER: You must walk the entire LA path through to the LSUM screen in order for
the new rental subsidy ISM amount to be transmitted to the SSR. You must hit ENTER
for each screen in the path, even if there are no changes made to a particular screen.
On the LCHG screen, answer Yes to CHANGE IN LIVING ARRANGEMENT SITUATION SINCE MM/DD/YY.
For DATE OF CHANGE, show 04/30/96.
On the LRNT screen, change the CURRENT MARKET RENTAL VALUE. In a Diaz case, this will
generally be equal to the PMV.
On the LIID screen, answer Yes to DOES ANY PERSON (NOT LIVING WITH YOU) OR ANY AGENCY
PAY FOR ANY OF YOUR FOOD OR SHELTER ITEMS OR PROVIDE YOU OR YOUR HOUSEHOLD WITH ANY
FOOD OR SHELTER ITEM only if the Diaz policy still results in a chargeable rental
subsidy or if there is another source of outside ISM. Otherwise, answer No.
On the LISM screen, overkey the RENTAL SUBSIDY amount with the new amount (if there
will still be some ISM chargeable, e.g., Diaz reduces the amount of rental subsidy
but does not eliminate it), or $0 if the rental subsidy is now $0 but there is another
source of outside ISM.
