NOTE: If the individual was a resident of a public medical treatment institution, there
is no ISM countable for the month he/she left the institution.
EXAMPLE 1: Individual Leaves Public Institution
Jerry Smith, an SSI recipient, has been ineligible (N22) for the past 4 months due
to incarceration in the county jail. On 5/9/99 he is released from jail and resumes
living in his home. On 05/10/99 he contacts the FO to have his benefits reinstated.
The FO does a redetermination and reinstates Mr. Smith's benefits effective with 05/99.
For the period he was ineligible (N22), it is not necessary to develop whether Mr.
Smith received any ISM. However, for 05/99 the CR charges Mr. Smith with a full month's
worth of ISM (capped at the PMV).
EXAMPLE 2: Publicly Operated Community Residence (POCR)
George Smith, filing for SSI, lives in Jefferson County Family Shelter. He has no
income and does not pay for his care in the shelter. Using the SSA-8045 precedent,
the CR determines that the Jefferson County Family Shelter is a publicly operated
community residence (POCR). Therefore, although he is in a public institution, Mr.
Smith is eligible for SSI while a resident. Since Mr. Smith is not paying for his
food and shelter, the CR must find out whether he receives ISM. The CR determines
that the food and shelter received in the POCR is not ISM based on the social services
exclusion described in SI 00815.050C.
