You can lose your SSI eligibility if your "resources" exceed certain limits.
For SSI purposes, a resource is cash or other liquid assets and any other real or personal property that you (or your spouse, if any) own and could convert to cash to obtain support and maintenance. If you have the right, authority or power to liquidate the property, it is considered a resource.
Not all of your resources count in determining SSI eligibility. Countable resources are those remaining after eliminating from consideration any asset that is not a resource and after applying all appropriate exclusions to the assets that are resources. Countable resources, which are determined on a monthly basis, are compared with the statutory resources limit to determine whether an individual (or couple) is eligible for that month.
Note that you can set aside resources in a Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS ) if SSA agrees that the resources can help you become more self supporting. If you include any resources in a PASS, do not count them when answering WorkWORLD's resource question.
