A notice will be mailed to BP and SAB recipients informing them that the maximum grant will increase July 1, 2007.
Supplemental Aid to the Blind and Blind Pension Adjustments
The maximum cash grant for Supplemental Aid to the Blind and Blind Pension is increased to $575.00 for actions effective July 2007 and later. Use the new maximum of $575.00 for all SAB and BP IMU5 transactions beginning June 09, 2007, effective for July 2007 and later. After the mass adjustment, issue payments for June or previous months as a retroactive payment. No IM-5 turnaround forms will be produced for these adjustments.
The following reports will be generated to MOBIUS and will be available after the mass adjustment:
“Cases Adjusted” - this listing will display cases adjusted during the mass adjustment; it is for informational purposes only.
- The “Cases Not Adjusted” - this listing will display the Aid to the Blind cases with an amount other than $575.00 in Field 33. Take immediate action to review and adjust these cases as necessary.
Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
