Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a needs-based program with strict limits and complicated rules related to resources. To be eligible, an individual or couple must have countable resources that are no more than the resource limit, so it is important to understand what resources count and how the transfer of resources is treated for SSI purposes.
As part of our series of Basics trainings, participants in this free webcast will learn about SSI resource limits and rules, including: how “excess” resources can lead to benefit ineligibility, suspension, or termination from the SSI program; the resource transfer penalty and ways to avoid it; and other strategies for addressing common resource issues.
