When determining initial or ongoing eligibility for AABD Cash and MANG, the first $25 of earned or unearned income is exempt, except for contributions, and SSI on MANG cases. If the total amount of income is less than $25, exempt the lesser amount.
Only one $25 exemption is allowed per client regardless of the types or sources of income. The income exemption does not apply to contributions from a spouse who lives outside the home.
See PM 15-04-03-a for additional policy on the use of the income disregard for MANG cases.
