Property Essential to Self-Support (PESS)

SSI – The Social Security Administration (SSA) does not count some resources that you need to be self-supporting when they decide if you are eligible for SSI. For example, SSA doesn’t count property such as tools or equipment that you use for work. Or, if you have a trade or business, SSA doesn’t count property such as inventory.

For a complete explanation go to SSA Online and view the Redbook section or contact your local WSC WIPA Benefits Planner 1-(855)-886-5123.
