B UMP - Living with Parent or Relative
 
(01/01/19 - 12/31/19)
When the Unwed Minor Parent (UMP) lives with a parent or adult caretaker relative(g) who is requesting or receiving CA for themselves, the following apply:
 
Combine all eligible children into one budgetary unit.
 
NOTE The UMP and their children are considered dependent children until the first day of the month the UMP turns 18.
 
Combine all income and resources.
Designate the parent or adult nonparent relative as the payee.
 
NOTE An UMP living in a separate dwelling on the same property as a parent, adult caretaker relative or legal guardian, is considered living with the parent, or the adult caretaker relative or the legal guardian.
 
 
When the UMP lives with a parent or adult caretaker relative who does not receive CA, the following apply:
 
When CA is requested only for the UMP, the child of the UMP is not required to be included.
When CA is requested for only the child of the UMP, the following rules apply:
The UMP must be included because parents are required to be included with their children.
Siblings of the UMP's child must be included, but not siblings of the UMP.
 
When the UMP lives with a parent who does not receive CA designate the payee as either the UMP or the parent.
 
When the UMP lives with an adult caretaker relative who does not receive CA, designate the payee as the UMP or the adult caretaker relative.
 
 
When an UMP lives with a parent or an adult caretaker relative not receiving CA, only the resources of the UMP count toward the CA resource limit.
 
When an UMP lives with a parent or an adult caretaker relative and the CA application is only for the UMP and the UMP’s children, the following applies:
 
Prospective eligibility requirements must be met before the budgetary unit can receive benefits. (See Prospectively Eligible)
The CA Needy Family Test is used in the prospective eligibility determination process. The CA Needy Family Test is used to determine whether an UMP resides with a needy family.
All members of the family(g) of the caretaker relative must be registered to the AZTECS case.
The CA Needy Family Test is based on the earned and unearned income of the family of the caretaker relative.
 
 
WARNING
When the parent or adult caretaker relative is requesting CA for themselves, they must be referred to the Jobs Program unless otherwise exempt. Key the correct CA Jobs Mandatory Referral code in the PAR/EXEM field on WORW.
