Why would someone have their SSI benefits check reduced by one-third?

Why would someone have their SSI benefits check reduced by one-third? in topic Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Answer

It sounds like they may be living in a situation that SSA calls Living Arrangement B, which is when someone is living with a family member or friend and is receiving food and shelter at no cost. SSA calls that "in-kind support and maintenance" and generally reduces the individual's SSI check by one third.
