7 AAC 40.160 - Review of blindness determination

(a) An otherwise eligible applicant who is found to be blind under 7 AAC 40.150 will receive interim assistance under 7 AAC 40.375 without further review of the initial blindness determination. Interim assistance will end upon the division's receipt of notification of the Social Security Administration's final determination of eligibility or ineligibility for SSI benefits. An applicant will continue to receive interim assistance until the applicant
(1) is approved for SSI;
(2) receives an adverse SSI decision and fails to appeal it to the next appeal level;
(3) withdraws or abandons an appeal at any level; or
(4) receives a notice of dismissal or an adverse decision from the Social Security Appeals Council.
(b) An otherwise eligible applicant found to be blind by the division of vocational rehabilitation under 7 AAC 40.140(c) may be subject to periodic reviews of his or her blindness at intervals determined necessary by that division.
