If in-kind income is earned (i.e., noncash wages or noncash net earnings from self-employment), the amount is
generally equal to its current market value (CMV).
If in-kind income is unearned and is food or shelter, it is “in-kind support and maintenance” (ISM). For determining
the amount of ISM, refer to SI 00835.001.
Any other in-kind unearned item an individual receives which he or she can sell or
convert is “other in-kind income”. The amount of other in-kind unearned income is
generally equal to its CMV, subject to the rules in SI 00835.310.
