401 Over Resources
You have too many resources to get assistance right now. See WAC rule (Washington Administrative Code):
Your resources cannot be more than $ __ (specify resource limit for household size). See the attachment for more information on how we figured out your resources.    
  • You don't qualify for Long Term Care (LTC) services because the equity in your home is over the $500,000 limit.
  • You may receive LTC services if we approve an undue hardship waiver. We approve hardship waivers when you can show that without LTC services:
    • You will be deprived of housing, food, clothing or medical care.
    • Your life or health will be endangered.
  • Your request must:
    • Tell us in writing the reason you need an undue hardship waiver.
    • Be signed and returned within 30 days of the date of denial or termination of LTC services.
    • Include the name, address and telephone number of the person writing the request.
    • You may authorize your representative, guardian, or facility where you live to file an undue hardship waiver request for you.
