9216EN - Read this if you want to know how tribal income and resources affect SSI benefits. We do not explain the effect of tribal income or resources on other benefits such as subsidized housing or long-term medical care benefits. The table at the end has info about food and state cash benefits (ABD, TANF, and so on.).
This is about property owned by Native Americans and Alaska Natives. You can find information about exemptions for other types of property in our brochure called, "Estate Recovery for Medical Services paid for by the State." That brochure also explains which DSHS medical programs require estate recovery. #9208EN
