For each employed child under age 18 who is a full-time student, disregard the first $50 of earned income. See PM 03-04-02-b for full-time student status. The maximum
earned income disregard for children is $150 per month, regardless of the number of employed children. The $50 disregard is in addition to the $90 employment expense disregard.
When a child is employed and no longer attending school, the child is no longer eligible for the $50 disregard. If the child's earned income is enough to meet their needs, the child can remain in the GA unit at the payee's option.
