New CAPI payment standard

The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) transmits the new payment standard for the Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants (CAPI).  Effective January, 2021, the 1.3 percent SSI cost of living increase will cause both the SSI/SSP payment standard and the CAPI payment standard to increase.

The cost of living increase will also increase the presumed maximum value for in-kind support and maintenance, the allowance for ineligible children in deeming situations, the sponsor’s allocation in alien deeming situations, and the allowance for parent(s) in parent-to-child seeming situations.  (ACIN I-78-20, November 17, 2020.)
