IM-48 ENDING EARNED INCOME IN FAMIS

Department of Social Services
Family Support Division
PO Box 2320
Jefferson City, Missouri

TO:  ALL FAMILY SUPPORT OFFICES

FROM:  KIM EVANS, DIRECTOR

SUBJECT:  ENDING EARNED INCOME IN FAMIS

 

DISCUSSION:

This memo is to remind staff of proper procedures when ending an income source in FAMIS, as noted in IM-14 of 2008. When an income source has ended, staff must determine when the employment ended and when the last paycheck from the ended employment will be received.

  • If employment ends the same month as the last paycheck received, the end-date for the income source is the date the last paycheck was received.
  • If the employment ends one month, and the last paycheck is received the following month, the end date for the income source is the date of the last paycheck.
    • If the income source is ended the month before receipt of the last pay stub, the income will not be budgeted correctly for the last month.

Example: Application received 3/3/2022. Applicant states they last worked on 2/22/2022 and will receive the final paycheck 3/4/2022. Enter a March budget with the amount the applicant reports and enter an April budget with $0, as no further income is anticipated from the employer. When verification of the final pay is received, update the budget to reflect the actual amount of pay received in March, and end the income source with the date the last paycheck was received in March.

Refer to the FAMIS Ending Income user guide in FAMIS Resources for additional information.

 

NECESSARY ACTION:

  • Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
