The requirement is an ability to meet the financial commitment, there is no requirement that it be from his own resources so,

either (a) The financial commitment was the rent less SS contribution or,
(b) The full rent (but with the SS assistance added to his income)

either way your claimant could meet it

I think it is streching interpretation to the elastic limit but not exceeding it . I would pay it
