    When payments are requested, we evaluate income that is available at the time.

    Step One:

    What funds has the survivor received in the last 30 days? Only consider liquid (cash) resources.

    Step Two:

    What funds does the survivor have immediately available to meet their needs?

    Step Three:

    What funds, if any, will the survivor receive within the 90-day eligibility period? When will the income be received? Do not delay addressing safety concerns based on potential future income.
