DHS ACL 03-34 – Changes in the Income Disregard (200%) Program for Pregnant Women (June 19, 2003)

Revises program rules immediately so that all income from parent(s) of a pregnant minor who live together in the home is disregarded when determining eligibility for the Income Disregard (200%) Program if the pregnant minor is not eligible using regular rules. This includes a pregnant minor who is between the ages 18 to 21 and is claimed as a tax dependent by her parents even though she does not live in the home of her parents. A pregnant minor who has a share-of-cost due to parental income and resources may redetermine her eligibility using the new rule retroactive to January 1, 2002. [Download]
