IM-152 November 21, 2002

Send advance notice to the family when an eligible child.  If the child is a full-time student in high school or the equivalent level of vocational/technical training AND is expected to complete the schooling/training they will remain eligible until age 19.

If the 18-year-old remains eligible under this requirement, he/she continues to receive a cash grant up to and including the month he/she reaches 19 or the month he/she completes school, whichever occurs first.  Send advance notice to remove this child from the cash grant.

If a child reaching age 18 who does not meet cash requirements is the last eligible child in the home, advance notice also includes removing the payee from cash.
