After exclusions, standard exemptions, and other deductions are allowed, total the remaining monthly income. Deduct this amount from the Consolidated Standard. If there is a remainder, the claimant meets the SAB need determination. If there is no remainder, the claimant is ineligible for SAB based on need.
If the SAB claimant receives a Federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payment, it is not considered income in determining need.
