State Supplementary Payments (SSP) Administered by States

Multifamily Housing has recently been informed that some states no longer have their State Supplementary Payments (SSP), which supplement the Federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefit, administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA).  Because of this, SSA has advised they are not able to maintain any information about SSP in the states identified in their table below.  The new protocol effects the income amounts provided by SSA to HUD and displayed in the Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) System.  In order to verify the payment in states administering SSP, verification can be obtained by the tenant from the state office and as outlined in Chapter 5 and Appendix 3 of HUD Handbook 4350.3 REV-1.  As explained in Chapter 5 of HUD Handbook 4350.3, REV-1, the verification must be provided within 120 days of the certification date and must not be older than 120 days from the date provided to the owner.

If the above causes a discrepancy in the EIV system, note the reason for the discrepancy and place in the tenant file.

The below information and tables can be found on SSA’s website at http://www.socialsecurity.gov/ssi/text-benefits-ussi.htm.
