Manual: Aged, Blind, and Disabled Medicaid
Change No: 18-09
To: County Directors of Social Services
Make the following change(s)
Administrative Letter No. 02-09 updated the Transfer of Assets Life Expectancy Table in April 2009. However, the life expectancy table contained in the ABD Manual had not been changed to reflect the 2009 numbers. MA-2240, Transfer of Assets, Figure 1 is now revised with the updated figures contained in the Administrative Letter. This figure is used to determine the life expectancy of a beneficiary of an annuity or a lender. The value of a life estate or a remainder, which is based on life expectancy of the life estate holder, continues to be determined from MA-2230, Figure 4, Life Estate/Remainder Interest Tables. The values in these tables have not changed.
