There are instances in which an individual resides in an EU, but for reasons listed below are considered “included” but do not have the role of “IN” (individual for whom benefits are requested) in FAMIS. On the Application Detail (FM13) screen, enter “Y” if the individual purchases/prepares food with the EU, “M” if the individual does not purchase/prepare food with the EU but is a mandatory member, and “N” if the individual does not purchase/prepare with the EU. FAMIS makes the determination of the individual’s role and will change the role if benefits are requested for an EU member but s/he is not eligible based on the reasons below.
The individual’s EU member role shows IC (included) in FAMIS. The individual’s income, expenses, and resources are all entered into the system like all other EU members, however FAMIS makes the determination of whether to count the individual’s income, resources, and expense in their entirety, less a pro-rata share, or exclude.
Reasons an EU member will be IC (included), but not IN the EU are:
- ineligible immigrant (see 1105.015.10.05 Ineligible Immigrants)
- failed to or chose not to provide an SSN (see 1105.015.10.10 Disqualified for Failure to Provide/Decline to Declare SSN)
- disqualified for intentional program violations (see 1105.015.10.15 Disqualified for Intentional Program Violations)
- sanctioned for noncompliance with work registration (see 1105.015.10.20 Disqualified for Failure to Comply With Work Requirement Components: Job Quit, Reduced Work Hours, or Refusal of an Offer of Suitable Employment)
- subject to and not meeting the work requirement for 18- to 49-year-olds (ABAWDs) (see 1105.015.10.25 Failure to Meet the 18- Through 49-Year-Old (ABAWD) Work Requirement)
- ineligible students (see 1105.015.10.30 Ineligible Students)
- disqualified for a felony drug conviction (see 1105.015.10.35 Disqualified for Felony Drug Conviction)
- disqualified for probation or parole violations (see 1105.015.10.40 Disqualified for Probation/Parole Violation)
- disqualified for fleeing felon status (see 1105.015.10.45 Disqualified for Fleeing Felon)
- disqualified for trafficking food stamp benefits (see 1105.015.10.50 Disqualified for Trafficking Food Stamps)
Consider income and resources of EU members with an IC role as available to the remaining EU members as outlined below. Included (IC) EU members may not participate in the program as separate EUs.
