SI DEN01140.215 Conservatorship Accounts

See SI 01140.215

In the Denver Region, all States give legal guardians and conservators the power and duty to protect the minor's or incompetent person's property and to use the property for support, care, and education of the individual. As a general rule, a conservatorship (or "blocked") account is available for the individual's support and maintenance. Therefore, the account is a resource to the individual, unless there is specific

restrictive language in the court order.

If it is not obvious from the court order that the funds are available as a resource, contact RSI/SSI Programs at (303) 844- 5717 for instructions. If necessary, you may be requested to send a copy of the court order to the Regional Office for an opinion by the Chief Counsel.
