Special Work Incentives for Youth – the Student Earned Income Exclusion

This toolkit will help you understand the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program’s Student Earned Income Exclusion (SEIE). You can use this toolkit to help youth and their families understand that work and a paycheck earned by the SSI beneficiary will always result in more combined income (SSI + earnings) and can retain their full SSI payment plus their paycheck.
