SI 01310.685 SSA-8010-BK - Sponsor of Alien - Questions 13-16

A. Introduction

We need information about sponsorship of an alien when the person making the statement is:

  • The sponsor of an alien and completes the SSA-8010-BK on behalf of the alien; or

  • An ineligible parent and completes the SSA-8010-BK on behalf of his/ her child, and also sponsors an alien who is eligible for SSI benefits.

The information is used to determine the proper allocation (dependent allocation for sponsor-to-alien deeming or eligible alien allocation for parent-to-child deeming).

B. Procedure — question 13

Complete for all deemors. If the answer is “Yes” and the person making the statement is:

  • the sponsor of an alien reporting his/her income and resources on behalf of that alien, then go to question 14.

  • an ineligible parent reporting his/her income and resources on behalf of his/her eligible child, then go to question 16.

If the answer is “No,” then go to item 17 (Signature).

C. Procedure — question 14

  • Complete 14(a). List the sponsor's dependents in 14(b) if (a) is “Yes.” If the sponsor alleges no dependents, go to question 15.

    If the dependent is also an SSI claimant/recipient, consider the need to update other cases in multiple alien deeming situations.

D. Procedure — question 15

  • Complete question 15 for individuals who answer question 14.

  • Emphasize question 15 because it acknowledges a sponsor's liability for any overpayment made to an alien that results from the sponsor's failure to provide correct information regarding deemable income and resources.

  • Explain that payment cannot be made to the claimant/recipient without the sponsor's agreement to report changes.

E. Procedure — question 16

  • Ask a parent who answered “Yes” to question 13 to provide the information requested about each alien he/she sponsors.

  • Use this information to determine if an eligible alien allocation applies in the parent-to-child deeming computation.
