SI 02305.074 Abridged RZ For T30/Start Date Cases When An Ineligible Spouse Becomes Eligible

A. Policy

T30/T33 Start Date cases when an ineligible spouse becomes eligible require an unscheduled RZ. Interviewers are only required to ask 13 questions on the SSA-8203-BK (Statement for Determining Continuing Eligibility for Supplemental Security Income Payments) if the interview is documented on paper. MSSICS may be used for these RZs, but there is no abridged path. The questions asked during an abridged RZ for these cases focus on the documentation required for the RZ period of review. All of the questions begin with “Since the date above.”

B. Procedure

Complete the following questions on the SSA-8203-BK in cases where an ineligible spouse becomes eligible and develop per the appropriate POMS instructions:
