SSA will not take a FS application from an individual whose residence has been determined
to be a commercial boarding house by the State/county FS office. Since there is no
listing of these facilities, the local FO management should contact the county FS
office if there is any question as to whether a facility is a commercial boarding
house. If the FS office has determined, in writing, that the residence is a commercial
boarding establishment, then the FO will not have to take the application.
