The minimum payment for a person living in the community is $1. A person residing in a long term care facility or DHS facility is eligible for cash benefits when available nonexempt income does not meet their needs, based on the Long Term Care
Standard. For active Long Term Care Medical cases, if a client receives less than $30 a month income and has no potential source of income to meet the $30 personal allowance, SWAP the case to Cash.
