Summary of Changes

SI 00604.079 Burial Funds: Question 47

We corrected the question number in the title from "Question 48" to "Question 47."

Section A

  • We corrected the question number in the subtitle from "question 48" to "question 47" in Section A.1.

  • We removed redundant language and corrected the question number from "48(a)" to "47(a)" in the first sentence in Section A.1 to read the following: "Whether alleged countable resources exceed the statutory resource limit, complete 47(a) for all claimants."

  • We corrected the question number from "question 49" to "question 48" in the NOTE.

Section B

We removed the obsoleted link to the MSSICS reference to the RFND screen, MSOM MSSICS 013.012, to the current SSI Claims System reference, MS 08113.028.

SI 00604.079 Burial Funds: Question 47

A. When and how to complete question 47

Whether alleged countable resources exceed the statutory resource limit, complete 47(a) for all claimants. When the claimant answers (a) "YES," complete (b). When interest earned or appreciation in value will not remain in the burial fund, complete item(c).

NOTE: Do not confuse the burial fund exclusion with the burial space exclusion explained in SI 01130.400 and covered in question 48.

Explain the effects on Supplemental Security Income benefits if the claimant uses excluded burial funds for some other purpose.
