Policy for adding a person to a TANF case depends on whether or not the person is:
- required to be in the case by TANF filing unit policy, and/or
- a newborn (from birth through 12 months of age).
Policy further depends on whether the person is being added to a TANF case, or an FHP case.
NOTE: Filing unit policy applies to only TANF cases (see PM 04-01-02).
When adding a child to the benefit unit, the caretaker relative must cooperate in the child support enforcement process (see PM 24-02-00).
