CCAP must count all income received by members of the CCAP family. See Chapter 2 (Glossary) for the definition of family or Chapter 5 (CCAP Family Composition) to determine who is included in a CCAP family.
Certain individuals in a CCAP household are exempted from having their earned income count towards the income of the assistance unit.
Whether earned income is counted or not depends on the age of the person, the person’s school status, whether the person is a dependent member of the family, and whether the person is a caregiver. A caregiver is the applicant or parentally responsible individual for the case.
For non-caregivers receiving earned income:
For caregivers (applicants or parentally responsible individuals) receiving earned income:
Half time or full time school status is defined by the educational institution.
Students age 6 and over who meet the criteria above and have earned income, must verify their school status to determine if their earned income is not counted. See Chapter 7.3 (Verification – Initial Application). If school status is not verified, their earned income must be counted. Non-caregiver students who are not dependent members of the family do not need to verify their school status.
See Chapter 16.27 (Exempt Earned Income Comparison Chart).
