(This Policy Directive Replaces PD #03-26-ELI)
The policy directive has been revised to reflect the following changes:
• Under certain circumstances, lump sum payments can be set aside for public assistance (PA) participants without affecting eligibility.
• There is a new exemption from the PA resource limit for participants who create bank accounts used solely for two-year postsecondary school tuition costs. The maximum exempt amount is $1,400.
• Certain disaster assistance payments to victims of the September 11, 2001 disaster are permanently exempt as income and resources for determining PA eligibility.
