# SI 01330.550 Sponsor-to-Alien Resources Deeming - Computation Rules

## A. POLICY

The resource exclusions that apply to a sponsor are the same exclusions that apply to an eligible individual.

See SI 01130.100 ff. for excluded resources.

### 2. Amount of Resources Deemed From Sponsor to Alien

#### a. Sponsor Does Not Live With a Spouse

The nonexcluded resources of the sponsor are deemed to the alien to the extent that those resources exceed the resource limit for an individual.

EXAMPLE: After applying the resource exclusions in SI 01130.100 ff., the adjudicator determines that the sponsor has \$3,200 in countable resources. The current resource limit for an individual is \$2,000.

\$1,200 (\$3,200-2,000) of the sponsor's resources is deemed to the alien.

#### b. Sponsor Lives With a Spouse — Spouse is Not Alien's Sponsor

The nonexcluded resources of the sponsor and his/her spouse are deemed to the alien to the extent that those resources exceed the resource limit for a couple.

EXAMPLE: After applying the resource exclusions in SI 01130.100 ff., the adjudicator determines that the sponsor and sponsor's spouse have combined countable resources of \$3,500. The current resource limit for a couple is \$3,000.

\$500 (\$3,500-3,000) of the sponsor's and sponsor's spouse's resources is deemed to the alien.

#### c. Sponsor Lives With a Spouse — Spouse is Also a Sponsor of the Alien

The nonexcluded resources of the sponsor and his/her spouse are deemed to the alien to the extent that those resources exceed twice the resource limit for an individual.

EXAMPLE: After applying the resource exclusions in SI 01130.100 ff., the adjudicator determines that the sponsor and sponsor's spouse have combined countable resources of \$3,500. The current resource limit for an individual is \$2,000.

None of the sponsor's and sponsor's spouse's resources are deemed to the alien, since their value is under \$4,000 (twice the individual resource limit of \$2,000).
