Person Living Alone, Person Living Only With His or Her Spouse (Only One Spouse is 70 or Older) or Living With One or More Co-Tenants (None of Whom is the Person's Spouse)

The monthly expenses in the table below are given on an individual basis. Use the table below if you were in any of the following situations:

  • You lived alone.
  • You lived only with your spouse (and only one of you was 70 or older).
  • You lived with one or more co-tenants and none of them was your spouse.

The total amount determined for all services rendered must not exceed 65% of the total monthly rent, or 75% of the total monthly rent for a person considered to be dependent senior.

If you shared your dwelling with one or more co-tenants and none of them was your spouse, divide the monthly rent by the number of people living in the dwelling  to determine your share of the rent.

If you lived with your spouse and at least one other co-tenant, contact us to find out what special rules apply.
