Initial Prorated Entitlement (IPE) are treated in a different manner than other cash benefits. When determining net income treat IPE benefits as follows.
Consider the IPE cash benefit as follows:
If the IPE amount or the fiscal month of receipt cannot be anticipated, review the effect of the IPE once it is authorized.
An IPE that covers the needs of a new unit member is the unit's income/asset and not the new member's income/asset.
