Income based on need (IBON) is assistance:
provided under a program which uses income as a factor of eligibility; and
funded wholly or partially by the Federal government or a nongovernmental agency (e.g.,
Catholic Charities or the Salvation Army, the funds are provided specifically for
a formalized program whose general purpose is similar to that of the SSI program).
EXCEPTION: State supplementary payments (as defined in SI 01401.001 ff. made to refugees are not IBON (see SI
00830.175), despite involvement of Federal funds.
