Earned Income Disallowance Worksheet

Have you been employed in the last 12 months?

If you answered yes to #1, did you earn less than $4,825.00 during the last 12 months?

Within the last six months, have you received cash assistance or benefits through TANF?

Aside from monthly income maintenance, did you receive TANF assistance, benefits, or services worth at least $500 over the past six months?

Did you have increased earnings during participation in any economic self-sufficiency or job training programs?

A disallowance will be applied to any qualified family whose annual income increases due to one of the following reasons:

2.         Increased earnings by a family member during participation in any economic self-sufficiency or other job training program.


3.         New employment or increased earnings of a family member during or within 6 months after receiving assistance, benefits or services under any state program for temporary assistance (TANF, Welfare-to-Work).


▪           TANF assistance may consist of any amount of monthly income maintenance,

▪           At least $500 in such TANF benefits and services as one-time payments, wage subsidies and transportation assistance.

▪           The $500 minimum dollar requirement applies only to one-time benefits, wage subsidies, and transportation.


The Earned Income Disallowance will begin on the first day of the month following the effective date of employment or the first day of the month following an increase in income.


The full amount of increase is excluded, and the exclusion extends for a total of 12 cumulative months.
