WAC 388-478-0057

Effective December 6, 2001

WAC 388-478-0057 Year-end adjustments to the SSI state supplement.

For the purposes of this rule, "we" refers to the department of social and health services.  We are required by federal law to maintain the total SSI state supplement payments at the same level each year, without an increase or decrease in total spending.  This may result in adjustment to your SSI state supplement benefits at the end of the year.  

  1. If there are unexpended funds, you will receive a one-time bonus payment, usually at the end of the calendar year.

  2. When there is a shortage in available funds, your state supplement benefits will be decreased.  The decrease will usually be spread out over multiple months to reduce the negative impact on you.
