Avvo has tagged your question as a Social Security issue. I have relabeled it as an immigration issue so that attorneys experienced in that area can provide you with an appropriate response.
Means-tested benefits currently include only SSI, TANF/AFDC, Medicaid, Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and Food Stamps. Earned benefits such as Social Security retirement, Unemployment Compensation, and Workman's Compensation may be included as income. Also, remember that other household income and/or assets can be used to qualify. I would highly recommend hiring an attorney to prepare and file the case. There is a lot of paperwork involved and evidence required. If not filed properly, your case could be returned by USCIS or greatly delayed. I have an office in Port Charlotte, that is not to far away form you, if you need further assistance. Initial consultations are free. Good luck.
SSI is counted as income. You need to check what the amount is that you need to make for your household size. Also assets can be used for support. If you are unable to meet the criteria you can use a sponsor. It is advisable that you seek the assistance of an attorney to complete the process to ensure that you complete the paperwork accurately.
