SI 02009.040 One Member of an Eligible Couple Has a Monthly FBR of $25 Before October 1976

POLICY

Prior to October 1976 when one member of an eligible couple was an inmate or inpatient of a medical treatment facility subject to a monthly FBR of $25 the computation of benefits to the couple was:

  1. Determine the appropriate FBR for the member of the couple not institutionalized (FBR for an indi­vidual) and add the FBR for the institutionalized member of the couple ($75 quarterly/$25 monthly).

  2. Subtract the countable income of the couple.

  3. The result is the payment to the couple (quarterly/monthly).

  4. When equal division of the monthly payment due the couple yields individual payments of more than $25, payment to the institutionalized member is re­duced to $25 and the remainder is paid to the other member of the couple. When division of the monthly payment due the couple yields payment of $25 or less to each member, equal payments are made to each.
