See SI 01220.300

A. Special Resource Provision

The special resource provision for former recipients of assistance under a State Plan is described in SI 01220.001. When specific conditions are met, the resource limits and exclusions under the State plan in effect in October 1972 must be used to determine eligibility for SSI benefits (SI 01220.300). If the State Plan is used, all of the resource provisions in the Plan apply. Do not use a combination of State and Federal resource provisions.
