2129. How is income defined for SSI purposes?

Income is anything you receive during a calendar month that is used or could be used to meet your needs for food or shelter. It may be in cash or in-kind. In-kind income is not cash; it is food, shelter, or something you can use to get food or shelter.

However, if you also receive Social Security benefits, they may be subject to income taxes.
