The purpose of the SSP is to increase the amount of income to meet your needs. The department will determine your payment amount based on your living arrangement and your assessed needs.
(1) For residential and voluntary placement program services, the amount of your SSP will be based on the amount of state-only dollars spent on certain services at the time the funding source was converted to SSP. If the type of your residential living arrangement changes, your need will be reassessed and your payment adjusted based on your new living arrangement and assessed need.
(2) For family support services, refer to WAC 388-825-200
(a) If you are on the home and community based services (HCBS) waiver administered by DDD:
(i) You will receive nine hundred dollars DDD/SSP money per year to use as you determine.
(ii) The remainder up to the maximum yearly award for traditional family support or family support opportunities may be authorized by DDD to purchase HCBS waiver services and will be paid directly to the provider.
(b) If you are not on the HCBS waiver administered by DDD, and you received state-only funding for the traditional family support program between March 1, 2001 and June 30, 2003 the amount of your SSP will be based on the yearly maximum allowed at the time the funding source was converted to SSP unless your need changes.
(i) Need is based on your service need level and whether you receive medicaid personal care as specified in WAC 388-825-254
(ii) If your need changes, the amount of your SSP will be adjusted accordingly.
(c) If you are not on the HCBS waiver administered by DDD, and you received state-only funding for the family support opportunity program between March 1, 2001 and June 30, 2003 the amount of your SSP will be fifteen hundred dollars per year.
(d) The yearly amount of DDD/SSP money will be prorated into monthly amounts. You will receive one twelfth of the yearly amount each month.
(3) If you are eligible for SSP because you meet the criteria in WAC 388-827-0115
(5), you will receive one hundred dollars per month.
(4) DDD may authorize additional payments to certain individuals if the SSP budget has sufficient funds to allow this payment.
