For non-SSI lump sum payments, consider the payment as available income for the month of receipt. Any amount remaining after the month of receipt is a nonexempt asset, subject to the asset limit. If nonexempt assets exceed the asset limit and all
other factors of eligibility are met, enroll the client in spenddown.
