ARRA provides for an additional $25 per week in unemployment compensation in States
that agree to participate in this program change.
If the State pays an additional $25 per week in an individual’s unemployment compensation
check, this amount is not excluded from income or resources for purposes of determining Part D subsidy eligibility.
The additional $25 per week is treated as part of the individual’s unemployment compensation
and counted under normal income rules. If the individual retains the additional unemployment
compensation, it becomes a resource, as of the first day of the month following the
month of receipt.
For more information about unemployment compensation, see SI 00830.230. For more information about resource exclusions for Part D subsidy, see HI 03030.020.
