Increase in CAPI payment standard

Effective January 1, 2021, CAPI recipients will receive a 5.9 percent Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA).  This increase reflects the 5.9 percent COLA for SSI benefits.  This increase will also be reflected in the presumed maximum value for in-kind support and maintenance, allowance for ineligible children in deeming situations, sponsor’s allocation in alien deeming situations and allowance for parents in parent-to-child deeming situations.  (ACIN I-92-21, November 16, 2021.)
