SSA will use the 1/3rd Reduction Rule if you live in another person's household and receive both food and shelter from that person and do not pay for it. In that case, SSA simply reduces your Federal Benefit Rate (FBR) by 1/3rd of its current value.
In some cases, especially if you want to use a Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) to help you achieve an occupational goal, it may be advantageous to contribute enough toward household expenses to pay your share of food or shelter. In that case, SSA will use the PMV Rule instead of the 1/3rd Reduction Rule.
See "PMV Rule In-Kind Support " for an explanation of the possible advantages.
