News Release
LACEY, Wash. -- Washington residents should not be concerned that receiving state and federal disaster-related financial assistance will cause them to sacrifice Social Security benefits or pay higher income taxes. "A state or federal grant will not add to taxable income, as long as the grant is declared as assistance to recover from a disaster," said State Coordinating Officer Kurt Hardin of the Washington Emergency Management Division (EMD). "This means that receiving disaster aid will not affect Social Security benefits or income taxes."
