Ms. Eisen lives with her sister in Minnesota near the Canadian border. She reports
that she is leaving the U.S. on October 2 to reside permanently in Canada. She does
not intend to return to the U.S. to live. The FO inputs N23 to suspend SSI benefits
effective November, the first month that Ms. Eisen is not a U.S. resident.
Ms. Eisen requests SSI again on December 4. She moved back to her sister's home on
November 16 because she couldn't meet expenses in Canada. She intends to reside in
the U.S. The FO obtains a statement from the sister indicating that Ms. Eisen visited
her on November 2, but returned on November 16 with her possessions and began contributing
to the household expenses. The FO determines that Ms. Eisen first met the U.S. residence
requirement on November 16 when she returned to the U.S. and established a permanent
place of residence.
Ms. Eisen was outside the U.S. for 30 consecutive days (October 3 through November
1). She cannot be SSI eligible again before December 16, the 31st consecutive day
back in the U.S. She remains ineligible for November. The FO inputs C01 to reinstate
benefits beginning December 16 since it is the first day that Ms. Eisen meets all
SSI eligibility requirements including the U.S. residence and presence requirements.
