Interim Assistance Reimbursement Payments

Code: NL-1000.8100-330

State or county offices that provide cash or vendor payments to help meet an individual's basic needs while their application for SSI or appeal of SSA's eligibility determination is pending. Interim assistance payments may also be made to or on behalf of people whose SSI benefits were suspended or terminated and later found eligible for payment. Upon approval of SSI benefits, the Social Security Administration reimburses the state/county for the total amount that the client received in benefits from the program. The remainder of the SSI back pay is paid directly to the client.
