What is NOT income for SSI purposes?

2130. What is NOT income for SSI purposes?

Certain things you receive are not income, even if they have value. Among them are:

  1. Medical care and services, provided by anyone, including room and board, provided by the medical treatment facility or paid directly to the facility by a government medical or social service program, while you are living in a medical treatment facility such as a hospital or nursing home;

    Note: Cash provided by an individual, a non-governmental medical services program, or health insurance is income if it is not reimbursement for, or restricted to the future purchase of, program-approved services.

  2. Social Services;

    Any social service, related cash or in-kind item from a government social service program.

    Note: Cash provided by an individual or a non-governmental social services program is income if it is not reimbursement for, or restricted to the future purchase of, program-approved services.

  3. Receipts from the sale, exchange, or replacement of a resource. These receipts are simply resources that have changed their form. This includes any cash or in-kind item provided to replace or repair a resource that has been lost, damaged, or stolen (see §2138);

  4. Income tax refunds;

  5. Payments by credit life or credit disability insurance;

  6. Proceeds of a loan. This includes money you borrow or receive as repayment of a loan;

  7. Money paid by someone else directly to a supplier on your behalf. However, goods or services you receive as a result of the payments may be income even if the third-party payments themselves are not;

  8. Replacement of income already received, e.g., replacement of a stolen paycheck;

  9. Assistance you receive to protect your residence from bad weather, such as insulation or storm doors; and

  10. Any item (other than an item of food or shelter) that would be an excluded non-liquid resource (see §2156) if you kept it.
