  3. Is your annual income below $17,505, or below $23,595 if you are married?
  4. Do you have resources below $13,440, or below $26,860 if your are married?
  5. If you answered yes to all 4 questions, you may be eligible for extra help.  For more information about the LIS program, visit or call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213.  You can also visit a local state Medical Assistance (Medicaid) office.  Visit, or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) to get the phone number
