The individual must have been determined to be a California resident for SSI/SSP purposes
in December 1999. For SVB purposes, anyone who is eligible for SSI, as explained in

Absent evidence to the contrary, assume California residency continued for individuals
in suspense December 1999 if they were:
California residents prior to the suspension,
not in suspense 12 consecutive months prior to December 1999, and
not residents of another State in December 1999.
Mr. Marcos was receiving SSI/SSP benefits in California until August 1999. His benefits
were suspended effective September 1999 due to excess resources and reinstated effective
February 2000 after he spent down. Mr. Marcos is considered to be a California resident
for SSI/SSP purposes because he was a California resident prior to his suspension,
he had not been in suspense for 12 consecutive months as of December 1999, and he
did not establish residence in another State.
Same facts as Example 1, except Mr. Marcos states on his redetermination form that
he moved to New York in October 1999 and did not return to California until January
2000. Because Mr. Marcos was a resident of another State in December 1999, he is not
considered to be a California resident in that month and cannot be eligible for CVCB.
