For children under age 16 who are not parents, enter a dash (-) in Item 73 of Form 552. For children 16 and over who are not parents and are not full-time high school students, enter B. For children 16 and over who are full-time high school students,
enter code 5.
Entry of the correct code for children 16 and over is important. Children with any code other than 5 are centrally removed from TANF by entry of code 3 in Item 78 the month after they reach age 18. Children coded 5 are centrally removed from TANF the
month after they reach age 19. If the child quits school or graduates before age 19, remove them from TANF for the next fiscal month by using TA 31/TAR 91 to change Item 78 to 3 for the child. If the case is ineligible for cash, SWAP it to Assist.
