SSI Deeming Rules

Generally, a parent's income and resources are "deemed", or attributed, to a child receiving SSI. This means that part of the parent's income and resources count against the child in determining whether or not the child is eligible for SSI. This publication will provide information about certain parental income and resources that are not counted against a child and then we explain the deeming rules.

In this publication you will also learn how to determine how much income is deemed from the parents to the disabled child, and how to determine whether the disabled child qualifies for any SSI.
