Combined Resources
(10/01/11 - 12/31/11)
Money may have been deposited into a participant's financial account from a combination of sources. Determine the resource type for each source, and whether the resource type is countable or not countable.
Treat combined resources in an account that include both countable and not countable resource types as follows:
Count resources determined to be countable.
Do not count resources determined to be not countable.
The following apply to the not countable resources:
For CA, resources prorated from income of students and self-employed participants remain not countable for the period of time over which they have been prorated.
For NA, resources remain not countable for a period of six months from the date they were combined with countable resources.
Withdrawals made before the end of the six-month period are countable.
After the six-month period, the not countable resources in the account are countable.
Treat combined resources that include only countable resource types as follows:
Do not count the combined resources.
The combined resources remain not countable indefinitely when deposited into a separate account from countable resources.
