- Loss of untaxed income (such as Social Security benefits, child support, or Workers Compensation);
- Loss of one-time income received in the prior year (must be on your prior year federal income tax return);
- Loss of income due to layoff, job change, or disability;
- Medical or dental expenses not covered by health insurance but paid out of pocket. Certain limits apply.
You can obtain a Special Conditions Application from Oserve and submit it with the required supporting documentation. Please note that not all requests for special conditions are approved.
