Personal Allowance

In the PERSONS column enter one of the following codes to show what items are to be included in the client's personal allowance. This code along with the number of persons eating together (Item 23) and the degree of activity (Item 68) allows the system to determine the correct amount for food, clothing, household supplies, and personal essentials.

NOTE: When the number of FS eligible unit members in Item 23 is less than the actual number of persons eating together, the Personal Allowance cannot be centrally determined. Enter code 16 in the PERSONS column of code 117. Then enter the individual personal allowance amounts in codes 101, 102, 103, and 104.

When the amount allowed for an item is not the same as the amount shown in the allowance chart, exclude it when coding this item.
