A person qualifies for AABD Cash if, using the AABD Cash Assistance Standard, their total needs exceed available nonexempt income by at least $1.
When determining eligibility and benefit amount use the actual amount of nonexempt income received or expected to be received. Determine total needs prospectively using the client's anticipated income for the payment month. A person who qualifies for
cash benefits is automatically eligible for medical benefits.
