Aged, Blind, Disabled (ABD): Income – Mineral Rights

If royalty income is NOT received monthly it is considered a lump sum payment. Any income received in a lump sum (with the exception of SSI lump sum) covering a period of more than one month, whether received on a recurring or nonrecurring basis, is considered as income in the month it is received.

If royalty income is received EVERY MONTH but in irregular amounts, an average based on the previous six months’ royalty income is computed and used to determine income eligibility. Exception: At any time the county becomes aware of, and can establish, a trend showing a dramatic increase or decrease in royalty income, the previous two month’s royalty income is averaged to compute countable monthly income.
