.01 Treatment of Sponsor's Resources
Consider the following in treatment of resources of qualified noncitizen sponsors:
 
Sponsored qualified noncitizens who meet the 40 quarters requirement are not subject to the resource considerations of their sponsor.
Sponsored qualified noncitizens who do not meet the 40 quarters requirement, but have a military connection are subject to the resource considerations of their sponsor.
Sponsored qualified noncitizens who do not meet the 40 quarters requirement, or the military connection are subject to the resource considerations of their sponsor.
 
CA EXCEPTION
Qualified noncitizens who are sponsored by an agency or organization are ineligible for CA. (See Agency Sponsor's Resources for EXCEPTION)
NA EXCEPTION
Sponsored qualified noncitizens who do not meet the 40 quarters requirement OR the military connection, are ineligible for NA. Code the participation code DI in the PT field on SEPA.
 
Count the total resources of a sponsor, and the spouse(g) of the sponsor (when living together), as a resource in the eligibility determination of the sponsored qualified noncitizens.
 
When the sponsor and sponsor's spouse were not married at the time the affidavit of support was signed, count in full only the resources of the sponsor toward the eligibility determination of the sponsored qualified noncitizen.
 
EXCEPTION
The sponsor's resources are not countable when any of the following occur:
When the sponsor is receiving SSI or CA.
NOTE When the sponsor's spouse is not receiving SSI or CA, the sponsor's spouse's resources are COUNTABLE.
Once the qualified noncitizen becomes a US. citizen.
The sponsored noncitizen has 40 qualifying quarters of earnings. (See Verification of 40 Quarters)
The sponsored noncitizen budgetary unit is indigent. (See Indigent Sponsored Noncitizen)
The sponsored noncitizen budgetary unit includes a participant who is battered. (See Battered Sponsored Noncitizen)
The sponsor becomes deceased.
The qualified noncitizen is sponsored by an organization or group rather than an individual. (See Agency Sponsor Resources)
The qualified noncitizen is part of their sponsor's benefit determination, or is receiving benefits with their sponsor.
The Qualified noncitizen is not included for participation in the CA or NA program.
 
Special considerations apply to NA Resources of Qualified Noncitizen Sponsors.
