I think my grandparents could qualify for SSI payments because the only income they have is a small social security check. They are afraid they would not qualify because of the assets they own. Will their assets count again- st them? A. A couple may have resources (assets) that count of up to $2,250 and be eligible for SSI payments. Not all resources count in determining eligibility. The home a person lives in and the land around it are not counted, regardless of value. Personal effects or household goods with an equity value of $1,500 or less are not counted. Also, a car may not count. Q. A friend of mine and I each receive SSI payments. We have decided to live together so we can share household ex- penses. Do we have to notify social security of this change in our living arrangements? A. Yes, you must notify social security if you begin living with others and sharing the household expenses.
