Income earned by an adult through the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), including minor parents receiving benefits for themselves and/or their children, is not exempt. Use WIA earned income when figuring eligibility and benefit amount. When budgeting, allow the earned income disregards. See PM 08-01-07-u for needs based payments and other unearned WIA payments.
For TANF, and all Family Health Plans, all earned income received through WIA by a dependent child is exempt.
