What does not count as income?

Not all cash payments count as income. For example, the Social Security Administration does not count the following items as income:
  • Food stamp assistance
  • Housing assistance;
  • Home energy assistance;
  • Medical treatment and drugs (also see Medicaid "Spend Down") ;
  • Disaster assistance;
  • Earned income tax credit payments;
  • Assistance from others to pay your household expenses;
  • Victim’s compensation payments; and
  • Scholarships and education grants.
