Adoption Subsidy Payments
(01/01/18 - 12/31/18)
Adoption subsidy payments are federally, state, or locally funded assistance payments provided to children with special needs. These payments are intended to help a child whose special needs otherwise might hinder their adoption. Adoption subsidy payments vary depending on the special needs of the child.
For CA, adoption subsidy payments are not countable as income.
For NA, adoption subsidy payments are countable as income.
Key the AD Unearned Income Code in the INC TYPE field on UNIC next to the child for whom the payment is intended. (See Budgeting Adoption Subsidy Payments)
