Hardy and Ida submitted a completed DHS-3440 on November 15, 1999.

c. If half of total countable assets are:

  • ≤ minimum – CSAA is minimum
  • ≥ maximum – CSAA is maximum
  • In between – CSAA is actual amount
case scenario3
Case Scenario

What is Hardy’s CSAA?

  • Half of total countable assets $182,900 ÷ 2 = $91,450
  • $23,744(min) and $81,960(max)
  • CSAA =$81,960
