SI 00830.180 Other Assistance Involving Government Funds
Section 1612 of the Social Security Act
Social Security Act;
20 CFR 416.1102; 20 CFR 416.1103
Assistance which is neither IBON nor ABON, but which involves government funds, is subject to the general rules pertaining to income and income exclusions.
NOTE: See sections SI 00830.625, SI 00830.615 and SI 00830.405 for examples of this type of assistance.
First determine that the assistance is neither IBON (SI 00830.170) nor ABON (SI 00830.175). Remember:
assistance involving Federal funds which are not provided by the Federal government for the purpose of meeting ongoing basic needs is not IBON;
State supplementary payments, including those made to refugees, are always ABON; and
assistance involving funds which have been supplied and directed by the Federal government for use solely in the type of assistance provided is not ABON.
Then determine the nature of the assistance and apply the appropriate operating instructions pertaining to income and income exclusions.
