    We do NOT offset SSI for adults when they get medicaid. Where did you that erroneous impression?

    Sorry, not exactly what I meant. Children's payments should be offset. Adult payments are offset. I was just trying to illustrate the fact that most minors already have their health, food, shelter, etc. provided for so why give more cash assistance?
