.04 Not Countable Support - NA
 
(04/01/15 to 05/31/15)
Support payments that are received by a nonparticipant are not countable towards the NA budgetary unit.
 
EXCEPTION
The support income of nonqualified noncitizens must be prorated to the remaining budgetary unit participants. (See NA Special Considerations)
 
When the court has ordered support payments be paid to a third party instead of the participant, the payment is considered a vendor payment (See Budgeting Support 1). Do not count any amount of the vendor payment even when in excess of the court order.
 
NOTE Do not allow an expense deduction for any expense paid by a vendor payment.
 
Do not count nonrecurring monies from an absent parent that are not court ordered and that do not exceed $30 per quarter, per child.
