If the individual is actively pursuing the work goal and additional time or the exclusion
of additional income or resources are justified, work with the individual to amend
the PASS to reflect the additional time or expenses required. Extend the PASS per
SI 00870.055D.1 below.
If the individual has failed to meet milestones on schedule, explain that the PASS
may be suspended which may derail the individual’s work effort and lead to the loss
of PASS goods being purchased (e.g., repossession of a vehicle for non-payment of
a loan) and SSI monies and/or eligibility. Make every effort to work with the individual
to amend the PASS, particularly if failure to follow the PASS is due to circumstances
beyond the individual’s control. Schedule a progress check in approximately 60 days
to see that the individual is following the amended PASS.
If, after your efforts, the PASS cannot be amended, or the individual has abandoned
pursuit of the PASS, suspend the PASS per SI 00870.070. Suggest the possibility of a new PASS with a more suitable work goal. Consider whether
alternate exclusions (e.g. an IRWE) are appropriate.
