C Nutrition Assistance Net Income Test
AZTECS applies the net income test in both the eligibility and benefit determinations. AZTECS determines the net income amount.
 
The net income calculation procedure is as follows:
 
Determine the gross countable earned income of all participants.
Subtract the 20% NA Earned Income Deduction.
Determine the countable monthly unearned income of participants in the budgetary unit, and add it to the net earnings.
Subtract any other allowable NA Income Deductions.
When the budgetary unit does not pass the net income test, key the EI Denial or Closure Reason code in the DEN/CLOSE REAS field on FSAD.
 
NOTE When a household meets expanded categorical eligibility and their net income exceeds the net income limit, the household is considered to be in a No Pay Status.
