Payment reduction

The monthly amount is reduced by subtracting monthly countable income. In the case of an eligible individual with an eligible spouse, the amount payable is further divided equally between the two spouses.

Countable income is the amount left over after:

  • Eliminating from consideration all items that are not income; and
  • Applying all appropriate exclusions to the items that are income.

Countable income is determined on a calendar month basis. It is the amount actually subtracted from the maximum Federal benefit to determine your eligibility and to compute your monthly payment amount.
