IES determines when a family becomes eligible for Family Assist.

updated amountsExample 1: An FS REDE application is received for a family of 2. The Family Assist Standard is $412. The family reports earned income of $810. IES determines eligibility as follows:

Gross Earned Income $810
MAGI Deductions -$50
Sub-Total $760
Countable Income $760
Family Assist Standard $412

The family is eligible for All Kids/FamilyCare Assist and no further action is needed. The family is not eligible for Family Assist.

updated amountsExample 2: A family of 4 reports that their earned income has decreased to $510. IES determines eligibility as follows:

Gross Earned Income $510
MAGI Deductions -$75
Sub-Total $435
Countable Income $435
Family Assist Standard $628

IES compares countable income to the Family Assist Standard. Since countable income is less than the Family Assist Standard, the family is eligible for Family Assist.
