The Federal Poverty Level is set by the U.S. government to help determine which individuals and families in the United States are living “in poverty.” For an individual (one person), the Federal Poverty Level is $12,060; meaning that, if you are an individual living by yourself and you take in $12,060 per year, you are living at the Federal Poverty Level.
