SSI Grant Calculation

For Unearned Income with No Earned Income

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a needs-based program. This means any unearned income you receive, such as SSDI, SSDAC, unemployment, veteran’s benefits, etc. will affect your SSI cash payment. This example demonstrates the effect of unearned income on Supplemental Security Income (SSI). To see how wages will further impact your SSI refer to the calculator “Calculate SSI with Wages and Unearned Income.” Get more information about Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Scenario:

STEP1     Unearned Income (SSDI, SSDAC, Veteran's Benefit, etc.)
  - $20.00   General Income Exclusion
 
   
  = $0.00   Countable Unearned Income
 
 
STEP 2   $721.00   SSI Federal Benefit Rate (FBR) = $721.00 in 2014
  - $0.00   Countable Unearned Income
 
   
  = $710.00   SSI Benefit Check
 
 
STEP 3   $0.00   Unearned Income
  + $710.00   SSI Benefit Check
 
   
  = $710.00   Total Gross Monthly Budget amount

Please note this calculator is for estimating only. Social Security will make the official determination when you report your wages.
