State Assistance Budgeting Income - Anticipating Income - Unusually High or Low Checks
(07/01/07 - 09/30/07)
When there is a pay period of income that is higher or lower than normal, determine with the participant whether the high or low income is expected to continue.
When the unusually high or low period of income is not expected to continue complete the following:
Count the unusually high or low check ONLY for the benefit month in which it is received.
Do not count the unusually high or low check for future benefit months.
Anticipate the monthly income for the future benefit months by considering both of the following:
The income from the income period used (not including the unusually high or low check).
The income expected to occur in the future.
