Enter letter N in Item 73 of Form 552 when a person's request for a Domestic Violence Exclusion is approved. Entry of letter N stops the TANF 60-month counter for the person if the counter is 60 or less.

When the Domestic Violence Exclusion ends, remove letter N from Item 73 of Form 552 for the next month that can be affected. Do not adjust the person's TANF 60-month counter if removal of letter N in Item 73 does not coincide with the exclusion period. For example, Ms. V was approved for a Domestic Violence Exclusion for the months of August and September. In September an MDS is held and it is decided that she is no longer eligible for the exclusion. The caseworker removes letter N for the payment month of November because it's too late to make the change for October. Do not adjust the TANF 60-month counter because the change cannot be made for October.
