TN 34 (08-99)
The value of a ticket for domestic travel received by an individual (or spouse) is
not a resource if the ticket is:
received as a gift;
not converted to cash; and
excluded from income per SI 00830.521.
The value of tickets for non-domestic travel received by an individual are a resource.
EXCEPTION: If the ticket cannot be sold or converted to cash due to restrictions placed on the
ticket, it is not a resource.
Develop under this section when an individual alleges having retained an uncashed
ticket for domestic travel andthe value of the ticket, plus the value of other countable resources, exceeds the
applicable resource limit.
Document the file or MSSICS screen with the allegation that the uncashed ticket has
been retained and that the ticket is excluded from income per SI 00830.521.
If the ticket is excluded from income, determine that it does not meet the definition
of a resource and do not include its value in the resource determination.
If the ticket was retained and counted as unearned income per SI 00830.521, count the CMV of the ticket as a resource.
