Question

I have a question about SSI taxable income. Is supplemental security income taxable?

No, supplemental security income (SSI) payments aren’t taxable. They’re also not considered earned income for Earned Income Credit (EIC) purposes.

For dependency exemptions, SSI payments used for support are treated as support a third party provides.
