If the individual is actively pursuing the occupational goal and additional time and/or
the exclusion of additional income and/or resources are justified, work with the individual
to amend the PASS to reflect the additional time or expenses required. Extend the
PASS per SI 00870.055D.1.
If the person is not following the plan, explain that the PASS may be suspended which
may derail the person's work effort and lead to the loss of PASS goods being purchased
(e.g., repossession of a vehicle for non-payment of a loan) and SSI monies and/or
eligibility. Make every effort to work with the person to amend the PASS, particularly
if failure to follow the PASS is due to circumstances beyond the person's control.
Schedule a progress check to see that the person is following the amended PASS.
If, after your efforts, the PASS can't be amended, or the individual has abandoned
pursuit of the PASS, suspend the PASS per SI 00870.070. Suggest the possibility of a new PASS with a more suitable work goal. Consider whether
alternate exclusions (e.g., IRWE) are appropriate.
