SUBJECT: NEW ELIGIBILITY INFORMATION SYSTEM (EIS) 8125 OTHER UNEARNED INCOME FIELD
Currently, in EIS, other unearned income (VA benefits, cash, contributions, etc.,) is entered into the Total Net Unearned Income (TOT NET UNEARN) field on the DSS-8125. Fields are already available on the DSS-8125 to identify the RSDI and SSI income amounts. Effective April 26, 2010, a new field titled ‘OTHER UNEARN’ will be created to allow for an entry of unearned income other than the RSDI and SSI amounts.
If you have any questions, please contact your Medicaid or Adult Services Program Representative, your Work First Program Consultant or the Information Support Unit at (919) 733-8938.
