An individual or couple in “FLA D” is ineligible for a Federal SSI benefit because of CI only if the CI exceeds the FBR. Although no Federal SSI payment is made if the CI from the BM exceeds $30 ($60 for
an eligible couple), the individual (or couple) may still be federally eligible.
For example, because the payment limit for an individual is $30, if the CI is continuously
$31, no Federal SSI payment is due. However, since the CI does not exceed the FBR
for an individual ($674 in 2011), this individual is federally eligible. (See SM 01305.001N.)
