WAG 11-02-07-a

Divert an AABD client's non-SSI income to meet the needs of an ineligible dependent spouse or child under age 18 if:

  • the dependent is living in the home, and
  • does not have enough income to meet their needs.

deleted text

When calculating diverted income, determine the dependent(s) needs as follows:

  • For a spouse only, use the AABD Cash Assistance Standard and asset limit.
  • For a spouse and dependent child(ren) or dependent child(ren) only, use the TANF Payment Level and TANF asset limit.

revised textNOTE: Do not divert income to a child or spouse and child when they are receiving TANF.

new textThe total amount of diverted income cannot exceed the total amount of the AABD client's budgetable non-SSI income.
