DETERMINING SNAP PRINCIPAL WAGE EARNER

ISSUE DATE: 12/2014

MFIP, DWP, MSA, GA, GRH:
No provisions.

SNAP:

You must determine the Principal Wage Earner (PWE) at application, recertification, and when unit composition changes. See 0005.12.12 (Application Interviews), 0008.03 (Changes - Obtaining Information), 0009.06.06 (Recertification Interview).

If there is more than 1 adult, give the adults in the unit the option to designate which adult is the PWE.

For units with NO CHILDREN in the unit who do NOT designate which adult is the PWE: The PWE is the unit member with the most earned income in the 2 months before the date of application, voluntary quit, or work registration non-compliance.

For units that include an adult parent(s) with children in the home OR an adult unit member(s) with parental control over children in the home who do NOT designate which adult is the PWE: The county will designate the PWE.

If you cannot determine who to designate as the PWE based on the information above, the primary contact person is the PWE.
