Depending on your level of need:
Your eligibility depends on your annual income (All income from retirement benefits and other income you would report for your tax purposes) and resources. If your income is less than $16,245 for single individuals (with no dependents) or $21,855 for a married couple living together (with no dependents) and your assets (property besides your primary residence) are less than $12,510 if you are single or $25,010 if you are married and living with your spouse than you may qualify for extra help paying for Medicare prescription drug costs*. These resource amounts include $1,500 per person for burial expenses. The amount of extra help you get is based on your income and resources.
