You will lose your PAAD, Lifeline, HAAAD or Senior Gold eligibility if:



  1. You establish residency outside of the State of New Jersey
  2. Your annual income exceeds the income limits set by law
  3. You stop receiving Social Security Disability benefits
  4. You are eligible and do not enroll or remain enrolled in a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan.

NOTE: If you lose eligibility because of an increase in your annual income, you are liable for repayment of all moneys paid on your behalf by the State of New Jersey from the beginning of the calendar year, not just those payments made after your income increased.

Failure to repay the State for incorrectly paid benefits could cause the suspension of your PAAD, Lifeline, HAAAD or Senior Gold benefits in the future, as well as the possible withholding of all or some of any rebates or refunds which may be due to you from the New Jersey Division of Taxation.

If you include false information on your application, you are liable for civil and criminal penalties under the New Jersey Medical Assistance and Health Services Act. You could lose your eligibility for one year for a first offense, and permanently for a second offense.

By law, you MUST notify PAAD, Lifeline, HAAAD or Senior Gold of any changes to your eligibility status. If for any reason you become ineligible, you MUST return your PAAD or Senior Gold card to the PAAD or Senior Gold program.

PAAD, Lifeline, HAAAD or Senior Gold mail is not forwarded, so you must notify these programs in writing of any change to your address; two proofs of your new address will be required. Please include your full name and Social Security number with proofs. Failure to report a change of address could delay your PAAD, Lifeline, HAAAD or Senior Gold benefit. 

You may be contacted for additional information needed to process your application. Also, you may be contacted as part of a sample group or by random auditing to assure that the information you provided is valid and true. However, if you refuse to be interviewed, you could lose your eligibility.
