WAC 388-455-0010

When and how does the department treat lump sum payments as a resource for cash assistance programs?

(1) If you receive a lump sum payment, we count it as a resource if it was awarded for:
(a) Wrongful death;
(b) Personal injury;
(c) Damage; or
(d) Loss of property.
(2) If some of your lump sum payment is designated for medical bills or to repair or replace damaged property, we do not count the designated amount as a resource for sixty days starting the month after you received the payment. After the sixty day period, we count all of the lump sum payment that remains as a resource.
