A non-unit member's income and assets have no effect on the eligibility of the unit they live with.

Count cash payments from the non-member as income to the unit.

If the earned income of a unit member and a person not in the unit are combined into one income, figure the unit's income as follows:

  • If the unit member's share of the income can be identified, use that amount for the unit's earned income.
  • If the unit member's share of the income cannot be identified, then prorate it among the number of persons that receive the income. Use the eligible member's share for the unit's earned income.
