updated amountsExample 1: A family of 5 in a Group III county with code F in Item 25 reports earned income of $1,152. The family pays no child care.

Step 1: The worker wants to process the case through ACM, allow the All Kids/FamilyCare Assist disregards:

Gross Earned Income $1,152
Employment Deduction -90
$1,062
$30 and 1/3 EIE -374
Total Countable Income $688
Family Assist Standard $519

 Step 2: Since the family is ineligible for Family Assist under the first method, recalculate manually using the 2nd method (the TANF employment deduction):

Gross Earned Income $1,152
Employment Deduction -768
Total Countable Income $384
Family Assist Standard $519

Since countable income is less than the Family Assist Standard, the family remains eligible for Family Assist. Process through IPACS leaving code F in Item 25.

updated amountsExample 2: A family of 3 in a Group I county has an active Family Assist case. At REDE, they have earned income of $360 and UI of $300. The family pays no child care.

Step 1: The worker first calculates manually allowing the All Kids/FamilyCare Assist employment deduction:

Gross Earned Income $360
Employment Deduction -90
Sub-Total 270
$30 -30
Sub-Total $240
1/3 of the remainder -80
Countable Earned Income 160
Unemployment Comp. +300
Total Countable Income $460
Family Assist Standard $432

 Step 2: Since the family is ineligible for Family Assist using the All Kids/FamilyCare Assist deduction, the worker recalculates using the TANF employment deduction:

Gross Earned Income $360
Employment Deduction -240
Countable Earned Income 120
Unemployment Comp. +300
Total Countable Income $420
Family Assist Standard $432

 Step 3: The family remains eligible for Family Assist. Process through ACM or IPACS, leaving code F in Item 25.

updated amountsExample 3: A family of 2 in a Group II county has an active Family Assist case. They report that they now have earned income of $990. Determine ongoing eligibility for Family Assist as follows:

Step 1: The worker first calculates using the TANF Cash 2/3 employment deduction:

Gross Earned Income $990
Employment Deduction -660
Countable Earned Income $330
Family Assist Standard $307

 Step 2: Since countable income is greater than the Family Assist Standard using the TANF employment deduction, the worker recalculates using the 2nd method.

Gross Earned Income $990
Employment Deduction -90
Sub-Total $900
$30 -30
Sub-Total $870
1/3 for the remainder -290
Countable Earned Income $580
Family Assist Standard $307

 Step 3: Since the family's countable income is more than the Family Assist Standard under both budgeting methods, the family is no longer eligible for Family Assist. Change code F in Item 25 to code X. Update Item 30.

updated amountsExample 4: A family of 3 in a Group II county has an active Family Assist case. They report that they are now receiving UI of $898.

Step 1: Unearned Income: $898
Family Assist Standard: $417

Step 2: Since countable income is greater than the Family Assist Standard, the family is no longer eligible for Family Assist. The family does not receive extended medical since they do not have earnings or child support.

Authorize All Kids/FamilyCare Assist for the family. Delete code F in Item 25.
