0210.010.10 Eligibility Based on Need

Compare income to the full need standard to determine eligibility in the following situations.

  1. At application or when adding a person when the person may not be eligible for some of the income disregards (i.e. $30 plus 1/3, student’s earned income).
  2. When determining if an NPCR is needy or not needy. EXAMPLE:  An assistance group of three has $432 earned income and child care costs of $80 per month. $846 (standard for 3) less $262 countable income ($432 – $90 = $342 – $80 = $262) = $584 deficit. Thus the family is eligible based on need.
