Code each case to indicate the presence of earned income for both budgeting and REDE purposes.
When budgeting earned income, always allow all the earned income deductions that the client is eligible for (i.e., the 3/4 earned income deduction and, if applicable, the adult/teen/child care disregard).
Submittal of a REDE for households in revised manual Mid-Point Reporting (MPR) status after it is due will never cause a loss of earned income deductions. Since budgeting is prospective, always allow all the earned income deductions for each payment month for which assistance is authorized.
