03 CA Income Maximum Test - Overview
The budgetary unit is prospectively eligible for CA based on the CA income maximum limit when the total countable income is equal to or less than 185% of the CA income maximum.
 
The budgetary unit is not eligible when the total countable income is more than the CA income maximum.
 
AZTECS completes the following when determining eligibility based on the need standard net income test:
 
Ensures a specified relative has been established for CA
Totals all countable income
Compares the total countable income to the CA income maximum limit
 
Complete the following when AFIM displays the edit message, FAILED - INELIGIBLE:
 
Key the Denial or Closure Reason code in the DENIAL/CLOSURE REASON field on AFPD. (See Denial or Closure References for Denial and Closure Reason Codes and links to the policy)
Key the CA ineligible date in the INELIG DATE field on AFPD.
 
NOTE The ineligible date is used to determine the eligibility begin date for Transitional Child Care (TCC). The date is also used to establish a CA overpayment.
 
The CA Need Standard Income Test is not calculated when the budgetary unit fails the income maximum test.
