WAC 388-474-0020 What can an Aged, Blind, or Disabled (ABD) cash assistance client expect when Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits begin?

You may only receive assistance to meet your basic needs from one government source at a time (WAC 388-449-0210).  If you are an ABD cash client who begins getting SSI, you should know that: 

1.    If you got advance, emergency or retroactive SSI cash assistance for any period where you received General Assistance (GA), Disability Lifeline (DL), or Aged, Blind, or Disabled (ABD) cash assistance, you must repay the department the amount of cash assistance paid to you for the matching time period.

2.    When you apply for ABD cash you must sign DSHS 18-235(X), interim assistance reimbursement agreement (IARA) to receive ABD cash assistance.

3.    You cannot use your ABD cash money to replace money deducted from your SSI check to repay an SSI overpayment.
