ACIN I-81-04 – January 2005 COLAs that Affect CAPI (December 6, 2004)

Although there will be no increase in the State-funded SSP amount in January, the federal SSI COLA kicks in on January 1, 2005. The increased CAPI Payment Standards, set out in the attached charts, become effective on January 1, 2005, and April 1, 2005 for SSI and the State COLA for SSP respectively. Just for fun, there is also information on the Presumed Maximum Value of in-kind support and maintenance, ineligible children and sponsor’s allocation, in deeming situations. And, just to make your head spin, the increase ain’t gonna happen for a CAPI/SSI/SSP couple if normal retrospective budgeting of the spouse’s SSI/SSP benefit is used to determine CAPI payment in the effective month of a COLA and the subsequent month.
