New York State SSI By Living Arrangements And Region

$79 / year

The dataset includes information on the monthly listings of the number of SSI recipients in each living arrangement classification in the Supplemental Security Income Program, by region.

Complexity

The dataset contains one record for each month for each possible SSI living arrangement within each of three jurisdictions, New York City, the remainder of the state (the total of each of the 57 remaining counties) and the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH). Each record contains the number of recipients in that living arrangement and the associated jurisdiction for the month. The living arrangements contained in the data are defined in various categories.

Living alone means living in a private household composed of one eligible individual or one eligible couple. An individual or couple is considered to be living alone if the individual or couple:

1. Rents a room in an apartment or a private home, but pays a flat fee and takes all meals outside the dwelling unit or prepares their meals separately;
2. Pays a fixed, pre-established flat fee for both room and board in a commercial establishment which meets no other living arrangement criteria (e.g., not licensed as a congregate care facility and not a public emergency shelter);
3. Lives with others, but takes all meals outside the dwelling;
4. Lives with others, but separately prepares, or has someone separately prepare, his or her food (occasional preparation of meals in common will not preclude a finding of separate preparation);
5. Receives a fixed, pre-established flat fee for room and board from all others in the dwelling;
6. Lives with only a foster child, a homemaker authorized by a social services district (SSD), or a family care resident placed by: the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH), the New York State Office for Persons with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD), or an SSD; or Has no permanent living arrangement (e.g., a transient person or homeless person) and is not living with an ineligible spouse or a child for whom they have primary responsibility.

An individual or couple is not considered to be living alone if the individual lives with an ineligible spouse; the individual or couple lives with a child for whom they have primary responsibility
(unless the child is a foster child); the individual is a child; or the individual or couple resides in a dwelling with others and prepares food in common with at least one other person in the dwelling.

Living with others means living in a private household composed of an eligible individual or couple and at least one other person. It includes a person who: Resides in a dwelling with others and prepares food in common with at least one other person in the dwelling. An individual or couple which meets one of the following requirements is considered to be living with others: an individual living with an ineligible spouse, despite the separate preparation of food; or an individual or couple living with a child for whom he or she has primary responsibility (unless the child is a foster child). Living with others criteria includes when the person is a child who is not living in a congregate care facility, is a child living in a congregate care level 3 facility, is living in a religious community and room and/or board is provided in full or in part by the religious community, has no permanent living arrangement (i.e., transient person or homeless person), but is with an ineligible spouse or child for whom they have primary responsibility.

Living in the household of another is defined as living with others but receiving a reduced responsibility because the recipient does not pay for the food and shelter received from the household.

Congregate care level 1 benefits are provided to persons receiving family care in a family type home for adults which is certified by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) and supervised by an SSD in accordance with applicable provisions of law and regulations, or a family care home certified by OMH in accordance with applicable provisions of law and regulations. An individual or couple is receiving family care if he, she or they have been placed in a family type home certified by OCFS and supervised by a SSD. A child is receiving family care if placed in a family type home by OMH or OPWDD, or by his or her parents.

Congregate care level 2 benefits are provided to persons receiving residential care in a residence for adults or a privately operated community residence, residential substance abuse treatment program or a community residential facility for alcoholism, certified by the
appropriate Office of the Department of Mental Health or a residential care center for adults certified by OMH in accordance with applicable law and regulations. For the purpose of this subdivision, a person receiving care in an intermediate care facility certified by the appropriate office of the New York State Department of Mental Health or receiving respite services shall not be deemed to be receiving residential care. A child can receive congregate care level II SSP benefits only if the child is residing in and receiving residential care in a facility certified by OMH, OPWDD, or the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services
(OASAS). After the month of entry into a congregate care level 2 facility that is classified as an institution for purposes of federal SSI benefits, couples are treated as consisting of two individuals, since couple status can exist only in households, not institutions.

Congregate care level 3 benefits are provided to persons receiving enhanced residential care in a privately operated school for the mentally retarded and developmentally disabled which is certified by OPWDD in accordance with the applicable provisions of law and regulations or an adult home or enriched housing program certified by the New York State Department of Health (DOH) in accordance with applicable law, rules and regulations to the extent permitted by federal law and regulations. Enhanced residential care facilities include Adult Homes and Enriched Housing programs certified by the DOH or schools for the mentally retarded certified by OPWDD. A child residing in a congregate care level III facility is considered to be living with others. After the month of entry into a congregate care level 3 facility that is classified as an institution for purposes of federal SSI benefits, couples are treated as consisting of two individuals, since couple status can exist only in households, not institutions.

A Title XIX Institution is a facility where Medicaid pays more than 50% of the cost of care. “Other” includes recipients either: residing in a private medical facility and Medicaid is paying for less than 50% of the cost of care, residing in certain publicly operated residential facilities serving 16 or fewer residents, or residing in a public emergency shelter for six calendar months during a nine-month period. Such cases receive no state SSI supplement.

Starting in July 2007 the living arrangement designated as “Title XIX Institution and Other” was split into two categories “Title XIX Institution” and “Other”. “Other” includes recipients either a) residing in a private medical facility and Medicaid is paying for less than 50% of the cost of care, b) residing in certain publicly operated residential facilities serving 16 or fewer residents,
or c) residing in a public emergency shelter for six calendar months during a nine-month period. Such cases receive no state SSI supplement. Mental Hygiene refers to persons under the jurisdiction of the Office of Mental Health.
