D Categorical Eligibility Benefit Calculation
 
(04/01/13 - 06/30/13)
AZTECS compares the income of an NA Basic categorically eligible budgetary unit against the Net Income Standard. Benefits are calculated based on NA income criteria.
 
AZTECS determines when the gross income of an NA Expanded categorically eligible budgetary unit exceeds 185% of the current federal poverty level (FPL). When the budgetary unit's gross income exceeds 185% of the current FPL, the budgetary unit is not categorically eligible.
 
When the budgetary unit is determined NA categorically eligible (Basic or Expanded), AZTECS displays the appropriate Case Type Code on FSAD, FSBH and CAP2.
 
When the budgetary unit is categorically eligible for NA benefits, follow normal processing procedures.
 
NA categorically eligible budgetary units are eligible for at least the minimum NA allotment.
 
NA EXCEPTION
NA categorically eligible three or more participant budgetary units are NOT eligible for at least the minimum NA allotment. These budgetary units must receive the actual amount of benefits.
 
NA budgetary units with benefits that are reduced to less than the minimum NA allotment, as a result of NA proration, are placed in an eligible no pay status.
