If the claimant's allegations of family size and AFDC payment amount match the appropriate
chart amounts, take the difference between the grant amount for that family size and
the grant amount with the SSI applicant removed. (If more than one person is applying
for SSI, see SI 00830.400D.11.) The amount determined by this method is unearned income for the SSI applicant.
Document the file with a separate Report of Contact (RC) showing the computation.
Verification may be done postadjudicatively .
In determining the AFDC income of the SSI applicant, take the grant amount with the
applicant removed and subtract it from the AFDC grant amount as if the applicant was
still included. For example, if an assistance unit currently includes three children,
the current grant amount is taken from the column headed "Children Only" for a group
size of three. If the applicant is removed, the assistance group becomes two and the
grant amount, the payment assistance standard for two. The AFDC income of the applicant
would be the difference between the two assistance standards.
