When it appears that a client is eligible for disability benefits through a health and accident or life insurance policy, the client must apply for them. If the client fails or refuses to apply for the benefits, consider the verified benefit amount as
available income. Consider disability benefits as income, whether the benefit is paid monthly, quarterly, annually, or in a lump sum.
