A pregnant woman who has no other eligible birth, adoptive, or step-children living with her may be eligible for MFIP or DWP under the pregnant woman basis of eligibility.
If the woman and the acknowledged father live together but are not married, use only the woman's income and assets to determine eligibility and benefits.
If the woman and the father live together and are married, use the income and assets of both the mother and father to determine eligibility and benefits. The father is also a mandatory unit member. See 0014.03.03 (Determining the Cash Assistance Unit).
Eligibility starts the 1st day of the month in which the pregnancy begins, or on the date of application, whichever is later.
Eligibility under this basis continues only for the duration of the pregnancy. After childbirth, determine if the unit (including the newborn) is still eligible along with other mandatory members of the unit. See 0008.06.12.09 (Converting a Pregnant Woman Case).
