State Supplemental Payment

The State Supplemental Payment (SSP) is a state-funded cash payment to those who are aged, blind or disabled. A child must receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to qualify for SSP. The Social Security Administration already verified the child's household income, so it is unnecessary to reevaluate this household's income.

Predetermined Eligible Criteria

You must determine if a child receives a State Supplemental Payment (SSP).

To determine if a child receives SSP, check the IMS EB, CM, or CMM screens. On the CMM, field F24 shows "A" for "State Supplemental Payment to Aged," "B" for "State Supplemental Payment to Blind," or "D" for "State Supplemental Payment to Disabled." Field 25 shows "A" for "Added."

You must not count any household income toward a child's eligibility when the child receives a SSP payment.

Do not count any household income toward child's eligibility once you confirm this information.

Where do I find more information about the EB, CM, and CMM screens? You can find additional instructions in the Quest article for EB, CM, and CMM.
