The Social Security Administration (SSA) calculates your Supplemental Security Income (SSI) cash benefit amount as follows:
SSA subtracts your Countable Income from the Federal Benefit Rate.
Your actual check amount may be different from the calculated amount if SSA is subtracting or adding an amount due to a previous over or under payment.
Your check may also be different from the calculated amount if there has been a recent change in your situation. The check amount is always at least two months behind after any change because of the accounting method used by SSA.
Alert - SSI Check Error for more reasons why your calculated check amount could be different from the amount you actually receive.
