PM 11-02-03: Using the AABD Cash Assistance Standard

WAG 11-02-03

A client qualifies for AABD Cash benefits when their nonexempt income minus allowable disregards, is less than their needs by at least $1 using the appropriate AABD Cash Assistance Standard.

If an AABD cash client's nonexempt income is greater than their needs under the AABD Cash Standard, the client is eligible for an AABD zero grant case if the person:

  • is eligible for SMIB, and
  • is not receiving SSI, and
  • their excess income is equal to or less than the SMIB premium.
