125 PERCENT OF POVERTY LINE

The table below provides dollar figures for 125% of the poverty line.  Except for the figures for "Family Unit Size = 1," they are copied from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Form I-864P, Poverty Guidelines, available at www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-864p.pdf.  The "100% of poverty line" figures are also available on the website of the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, at http://aspe.hhs.gov/poverty/11poverty.shtml.  (The figures for "Family Unit Size = 1" were derived by multiplying "100% of poverty line" figures by 1.25.)
