SSI for Military Families

     WASHINGTON (CN) – The Social Security Administration plans to revise its rules to clarify that, for Supplemental Security Income purposes, the SSA does not consider any combat-related military pay as income when it determines whether spouses and children of members of the uniformed services are eligible for SSI.

     The rules also would clarify that the SSA does not consider combat-related military pay as income when it determines the spouse’s or child’s proper payment amount. The SSA also would not consider retroactive payments of certain military pay as resources for nine months following receipt, when the SSA determines whether spouses and children are eligible for SSI.
