Yes - that is what we need to do.
For tax purposes - we are using total income received during the tax year.
However - for SSI purposes - income is determined on the monthly basis.
When income received equally during the year - that makes no difference - and we simply divide annual income by 12 months.
But if income is not received evenly - then - we would need to keep track on income separately for each month.
If the father makes payments directly to vendors, it is not income. for SSI purposes.
That is not correct interpretation.
If the father makes rent payments directly to the landlord for the son - these payments are deemed as made to the son.
Moreover - if the father provides rent free dwelling for the son without any payments - that is treated as providing support as a fair rental value and that must be disclosed on teh SSI application .
That is for SSI eligibility purposes.
That is not "rental income" for the son - but that is a tax free support the son receives.
