SI NY01730.005 (New Jersey) — Medicaid Qualifying Trusts (TN 435 - 05/2013)

When an individual residing in a section 1634 State has a Medicaid trust, SSA determines if the trust is countable for SSI purposes. The existence of a Medicaid trust results in a referral to the Medicaid State agency for a Medicaid eligibility decision. See SI 01730.048 for the definition of Medicaid trusts and procedures to determine if a trust is countable for SSI purposes.

When a case with a trust or SLD is sent to the State, the FO must complete the MSSICS ROTH screen per MSOM MSSICS 013.011C or in the paper environment input a "Q" in the PT field of the SSR per POMS SM 01005.350 . Once the case is referred to the State, they will make a determination as to whether the recipient can receive Medicaid.

The FO should make a photocopy of the trust or SLD and mail it under cover of Exhibit I to the address below. The claimant should also be provided with a copy of Exhibit I for his/her records.
