A Stepparent Not Requesting CA
 
(10/01/10 – 12/31/10)
AZTECS counts the stepparent's NET income toward the CA Needy Family test when CA is requested for the stepchild.
 
NOTE When the stepparent is not included in the assistance unit, the stepparent's income is not countable toward the grant determination.
 
CA EXCEPTION
For Tribal TANF, deem the stepparent’s income when they are not requesting TANF and their spouse(g) (the dependent child’s parent) is in the home.
 
For CA, count resources of the stepparent that are AVAILABLE to the CA budgetary unit when the stepparent and their spouse (the dependent child's parent) are in the home. Do not count the sole and separate resources of the stepparent toward the CA budgetary unit when the stepparent is not included.
