SI 00604.035 Alien Allocation: Question 17

A. Introduction

Question 17 gathers information used to determine whether the alien allocation applies in spouse-to-spouse deeming situations.

B. When and how to complete

1. Complete 17(a)

Complete 17(a) only when a spouse is not filing for SSI and:

  • The claimant and spouse are living together; or

  • The claimant and spouse separated since the first moment of the filing date month.

2. Complete 17(b)

When the claimant answers “YES” to (a), complete 17(b).

3. Separation prior to reference date month

If the claimant was separated prior to the first moment of the filing date month, do not complete (a). The alien allocation does not apply in this situation. Therefore, skip 17(a) and go to question 18.
