Determine and verify the family's nonexempt monthly income. Use current nonexempt monthly income unless a change in income is expected within the next month. For earned income, use Best Estimate policy (see PM 10-01-01 and WAG 10-01-01). Add gross wages to net self-employment and other nonexempt income. The family is ineligible for child care if their income exceeds the maximum.
Please refer to Important Parent Copayment Information (Form IL444-3455B and IL444-3455BS) for family size and gross income guidelines. Information can also be obtained in WAG 25-03-14-a and WAG 25-03-14-b.
