Can disability and social security be used to sponsor an immigrant on the I-864, Affidavit of Support Form?

Yes, because sponsorship is determined by the expected income of the current year (as opposed to the income on the previous year’s tax return) disability, workman’s compensation and Social Security can all be used to qualify to sponsor an immigrant. Even if the income is not taxable (i.e. disability), you can still show the evidence of the income with multiple pay stubs and checks issued to you that verify how much you earn in disability each month.
