When the ineligible person is the parent of all the children or the only person in the case, the case is not eligible for TANF. The children cannot receive cash in a child-only RPY case as long as they live with a parent who is ineligible due only to
the time limit. If the parent becomes ineligible for some other reason, such as receipt of SSI, the parent may have an RPY case for the children.
