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