Some family members are mandatory for inclusion in the assistance group and some are optional. Others are mandatory for exclusion. Determine the assistance group by including mandatory members, and optional members whose inclusion does not adversely affect eligibility. Mandatory exclusions take precedence over the mandatory inclusions for assistance grouping.

  1. Assistance Group Mandatory Persons Included (UWHS)Mandatory assistance group members include:
    • the woman
    • the spouse of the woman (if in the home)

    NOTE: The father of an included optional child is mandatory, regardless of spousal status.

  2. Assistance Group Mandatory Exclusions (UWHS)The following persons must be excluded from the assistance group:
    • a married child whose spouse is in the home.
  3. Assistance Group Optional Members (UWHS)The woman has the option to include the following persons in the assistance group, unless they are a mandatory exclusion:
    • dependent children of the woman (including step-children).

    NOTE: Do not include optional assistance group members whose income causes ineligibility.
