#17-17-ELI: Veterans' Benefits and Servicemember's Allotments

(This Policy Directive Revises PD #16-22-ELI)

Individuals and their dependents/family members who are serving/have served in the US Military must accept and comply with a referral to the NYSDVA office at the VA Regional Office, so that their eligibility for veterans-related benefits/services can be assessed, as a condition of eligibility for Cash Assistance (CA) and Medical Assistance (MA). Failure of an individual to comply with this referral will result in CA and MA ineligibility for that individual and the entire CA household. However, the MA for children less than 19 years old on the case will be continued for 12 months or until the child reaches his/her 19th birthday, whichever comes first.
