As we told you in the October Disability Law News, SSA paid a 2.8% cost of living adjustment (COLA) for 2019. OTDA’s updated 2019 SSI and SSP Benefits Chart is available at http://otda.ny.gov/policy/directives/2018/INF/18-INF-15.pdf. Thanks to Jim Murphy of LSCNY for compiling all the SSI/SSP charts from 1976-2019. They are available on the Empire Justice Center website at https://empirejustice.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/SSI-SSP-Benefit-Levels-1976-2019.pdf.
Jim has also put together an SSI/SSP Budget Workbook that can be used for individual, parent-to-child deeming, spouse-to-spouse deeming, and couple budgeting from 2000-2019. The workbook is available on the Empire Justice Center website at https://empirejustice.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/2000-2019-SSI-SSP-Budget-Workbook.xls.
The NYS Department of Health has updated its Medicaid charts to reflect 2019 changes. https://www.health.ny.gov/health_care/medicaid/publications/docs/gis/18ma015.pdf.
