ACM calculates overpayments and underpayments for TANF/AFDC and FS using budgeting standards for a given payment month. AFDC underpayments and overpayments that happened before 04/01/90 must be figured manually.

The system figures overpayments or underpayments due to:

  • earned or unearned income, and/or
  • differences in the number of persons, adults and children, included in the case.

NOTE: It does not calculate overpayments caused by too many assets.

The automated calculation function is limited to calculating the actual benefit amount for a single month. When more than one month is involved, a calculation must be completed for each month.
