INCOME OF NON-APPLICANTS

ISSUE DATE: 07/2012
Revision #3

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


SNAP:

You must count as available to the unit part of the income of all unit members not applying for SNAP (non-applicants) who live with a unit. To determine the amount:

1.

Determine the total gross income of the non-applicant(s). See 0017 (Determining Gross Income).

2.

Divide the total gross income of the non-applicant(s) by the number of people in the unit, including the non-applicant(s).

3.

Disregard the prorated share of the income for the non-applicant(s). The remaining income is the unit's share.

4.

Apply the Gross Income Test. See 0019 (Gross Income Test). If the unit fails the GIT, deny or terminate assistance. If the unit passes the GIT, proceed to Steps 5 through 6.

5.

From the unit's share (which you determined in Step 3), disregard 20% of the earned income. See 0018.18 (Earned Income Disregards).

6.

The resulting amount is unearned income to the unit. Include this amount in the unit's net income test. See 0020 (Net Income Limits).
