Field Op 2003-30: Review (of legal immigrants on EAEDC) for SSI Eligibility

Certain EAEDC elderly recipients (age 65 or older) may now be eligible and
must reapply for SSI benefits because of a change in their noncitizen status or
more up-to-date information on their work history. They were initially denied
SSI because of their noncitizen status. Some of these recipients may also be
disabled with a disability expected to last 12 months or more.
In addition to reducing Department costs, encouraging applicants/recipients to
apply for and follow through with the SSI process ensures a greater cash benefit
for the recipient once the SSI is approved.
