How does this affect people who applied and qualified for extra help (i.e. those that did not automatically qualify)?

The Social Security Administration evaluated the eligibility of people who applied and qualified for extra help before May 2006. Social Security mailed these people a letter at the end of August informing them what Social Security's records show for their earnings (not including cost of living increases), resources, and household size.

People who don't have changes to their income, resources, or household size don't require doing anything. People who have any changes to their income, resources, or household size will require returning a one-page letter to Social Security within 15 days. Social Security will then mail a form for them to fill out and return known as "Social Security Administration Review of Your Eligibility for Extra Help" (Form 1026B). If these individuals fill out and return the form within 30 days, any change to the amount of extra help they qualify for which they will be effective in January 2007 unless their marital status changed.

Changes in marital status may result in changes to the amount of extra help in the following month.

Social Security will also send the eligibility review form (1026B) directly to some people to complete because Social Security has information that there was a change in income or resources. This form needs to be returned within 30 days. Social Security will review the eligibility review form (1026B) and send the person a letter explaining its decision. Social Security may decide a person

Has no change in the amount of extra help they receive, or

Has an increase in the amount of extra help they receive, or

Has a decrease in the amount of extra help they receive, or

No longer qualifies for extra help.
