We may lower the benefit if you have other income.
We figure your benefit amount the same as we do for a person who lives in his own house, apartment, or mobile home. You can receive up to the maximum SSI benefit payable in your State while living in a public shelter for up to 6 months out of any 9 month period. You don't need an address to get SSI benefits.
We will make arrangements to pay you. In-kind support and maintenance is food, shelter, or both that somebody else provides for you.
We count in-kind support and maintenance as income when we figure the amount of your SSI benefits. For example, if someone helps pay for your rent, mortgage, food, or utilities, we reduce the amount of your SSI benefits.
Your living arrangement is where you live, if you live alone or with someone else, or if you live in an institution, such as a nursing home. Your living arrangement also depends on who pays for your food and shelter.
Whether you live alone or with someone else, we need to know who pays for your food, shelter, and utilities. Here are some examples of common living arrangement situations. Suppose you live alone and your only income is SSI. We count this payment as in-kind support and maintenance. Here are the steps we use to figure the SSI benefit amount. We do not count the payment of the phone bill or the cable television bill as in-kind support and maintenance so these payments do not affect your SSI benefits.
We determine your SSI benefit amount as follows:. Suppose you live with your brother, and 2 uncles in a home that your brother is buying and your only income is SSI. There are 4 people in the household. Suppose you live in a house owned by your sister who allows you to live there rent-free. You pay all the utilities and buy all the food. The rent-free house is counted as in-kind support and maintenance.
We would determine your SSI benefit as follows:.
If you will be in a medical institution for 90 days or less, you may be able to receive your regular SSI benefit.Looking for someone living arrangement
