SSI Resources - Assets Not Resources

When determining countable resources, certain assets are not considered as resources. The term "resources" does not apply to:

A. Any property right which has a legal restriction preventing its sale or liquidation.

B. Home energy or support and maintenance assistance (see SSA Handbook, 2138).

C. Restricted allotted land owned by an enrolled member of an Indian tribe if the individual cannot sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of the land without the permission of others.

D. Except for cash reimbursement of medical or social services expenses already paid by the individual, cash received for medical or social services which is not income under 2129 (A) and (B) of the SSA Handbook. (This exclusion applies only for the calendar month following the month of its receipt. Cash retained until the first moment of the second calendar month following its receipt is a resource at that time.)

E. Retroactive in-home supportive services payments to ineligible spouses and parent.

F. Death benefits an individual will use to pay the deceased's last illness and burial expenses for the first month following the month of receipt (only for 1 calendar month following receipt.).

G. Certain gifts of domestic travel tickets if excluded from income and not converted to cash.

This information is from Section 2150 of the SSA Handbook.

NOTE: As of March 9, 2005, SSA has changed its resource-counting rules in the SSI program by eliminating the dollar value limit for the exclusion of household goods and personal effects. As a result, SSA will not count household goods and personal effects as resources. For more information see:
http://www.ssa.gov/regulations/articles/rin0960_af84f.htm

 

ALSO NOTE: As of March 9, 2005, SSA has changed its rules for excluding an automobile in determining the resources of an SSI applicant or recipient. SSA will exclude one automobile (the "first" automobile) from resources if it is used for transportation for the individual or a member of the individual's household, without consideration of its value.
