Two Nonparent Caretaker Relative Cases
Two nonparent caretaker relatives(g) (NPCR) may be living in the same home and each apply for dependent children who are not siblings. When this occurs, complete the following:
Create and maintain two case files(g).
Complete the original application for the PI.
Upload a copy of the original paper application or a copy of the HEAplus Application Summary to OnBase(g).
Register the copied application using the name of the NPCR of the non-related dependent child as the PI. (See Example Optional CA Participants)
Set an appointment for a CA interview for the NPCR of the non-sibling child.
When the NPCR appears for the CA interview, obtain the appropriate signatures. (See Signing the Application and Other Documents)
When the two NPCRs are married, count the income of each spouse(g) to the spouse in the other case.
Divide resources equally between the spouses only for the CA eligibility determination.
In both cases, list the PI, their spouse, and all children. Key the appropriate participation code in the PT field on SEPA for each participant.
