A onetime only lump sum SSI payment (including Zebley payments) made to a TANF or Family Health Plan client is exempt.
For those persons who are not included in the TANF case but whose income is used to determine the unit's eligibility (e.g., stepparents), the lump sum payment is nonexempt income for the month received.
