For a school employee whose earnings are not required to be annualized (e.g., bus driver, cafeteria worker), stop budgeting earnings when earnings end due to summer vacation.
See PM 08-04-01-a for school employees whose earnings are required to be annualized (e.g., teachers).
When the job starts in the fall, budget the actual amount anticipated for any month in which less than a full month's pay will be received. If earnings are paid weekly or bi-weekly, start income-averaging for the first full month earnings will be received.
