An alien whose admission to the U.S. was due solely to promotion by an organization
is not subject to sponsor-to-alien deeming.
While we do not deem from an alien's sponsoring organization, any cash or in-kind
receipts received by an alien from an organization must be considered under the normal
SSI income counting rules.
NOTE: The term “sponsor” does not include, for deeming purposes, an organization such as the congregation of a church
or a service club.
If an alien whose admission was promoted by an organization is also sponsored by an
individual, sponsor-to-alien deeming applies from the individual.
