From January 1, 1974 through March 31, 1996 all Maine State supplementary payments,
mandatory and optional, were Federally administered. Beginning April 1, 1996 the State
administers all payments. After the 12-month period following cessation of Federal
administration of State supplement payments, March 31, 1997, SSA no longer considers
State supplementation for any calculation, or recalculation, of SSI payments for the
period January 1, 1974 through March 31, 1996. See POMS SI BOS01415.910 for Maine Optional State Supplementary Payment Charts – 1974-1996.
