This forum is intended as a question and answer forum regarding the new SCSEP data collection system, the use of the SCSEP data collection forms, and related issues.
Q: One of my subs has a participant who receives a pension (medical) due to an injury at his employer. The participant states that he gets the medical pension because his injury prevents him from returning to work. Is this pension includable as income for purposes of SCSEP eligibility?

A: The TEGL refers to pensions and disability payments. Pensions, which are usually paid based on some combination of age and years of service, are includable as income. Disability payments, which are usually paid as a result of an injury or medical condition and are not dependent on age or years of service, are excludable. The participant will need to document the exact nature of the payments before you can determine whether to count them as income. That may require contacting the ex-employer for documentation.
