Temporary Assistance/Case Management

0230.025.00 Case Closings – Wage Supplementation

Wage supplementation cases may be closed only if participation in wage supplementation ends.  (NOTE:  Situations such as the employed absent parent returning to the home or the last eligible child leaving the home does not determine a wage supplementation case ineligible.)  Wage supplemented cases do not become ineligible due to child support income exceeding the grant amount.  When child support exceeds the grant amount, the Division of Child Support Enforcement will pay the amount exceeding the grant amount to the family.  The amount exceeding the grant amount will not be used in the Temporary Assistance budget.  When employment ends, the wage supplementation component (21D) must be closed in JCAT before the Temporary Assistance case can be closed.
