Total Monthly Income

The income limit is based on your income from the previous year. Social Security income is calculated as a “before Medicare deduction” amount.

Less than $1,822.50

Total Resources

Resources include money in a checking, savings, or retirement account, stocks, and bonds. States do not count the home you live in, one car, or burial plots. 

Less than $16,600.00

If your income and total resources are above the benchmarks, you may still qualify for partial assistance.
