PM 03-03-02: SSI and AABD Cash

WAG 03-03-02.

AABD Cash payments are made to persons whose age, blindness, or disability satisfies the SSI eligibility requirements.

To receive AABD Cash, a person must:

  • be receiving SSI; or
  • have been denied SSI due to income; or
  • be a noncitizen who:
    • is 65 years of age or older, and
    • meets the citizenship/immigration requirements for medical assistance, and
    • legally resided in the U.S. on 08/22/96, and
    • was denied SSI due to a finding of "not disabled"; or
  • changebe a noncitizen who is ineligible for SSI due to expiration of the federal 7 year limit.

The cash payment is the difference between the client's income and the AABD Cash Assistance Standard.
