Extra Help Estimator

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.

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. 

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