1105.015.05.20 Foster Care Individuals

IM-11 March 18, 2014

Foster Care individuals are considered boarders. The EU elects whether or not the individual is included in the Food Stamp EU. However, they differ from other boarders in two ways:

  • if included as an EU’s member, count their entire foster care payment as unearned income; and
  • the reasonable compensation evaluation is not necessary to qualify them as boarders.
