SI 00604.093 School Attendance: Question 57
We removed the obsoleted link to the ISCH screen in MSSICS with the current SSI Claims System link to the School Data screen, MS 08114.069.
The purpose of question 57 is to determine whether the student earned income exclusion or the exclusion of one-third of child support payments from an absent parent may apply.
If the claimant is under age 18 and working or is age 18-22 (whether working or not), complete question 57. Otherwise, go to question 58.
Document the permanent living arrangement in Part II for a child or student child who does not live with parents while attending school.
Complete the "Dates of Attendance" block in 57(d) to capture current and future anticipated school attendance. Indicate the number of hours per week in the "Hours Attending" portion.
