§ 183.103. Additions to the budget group.
(a) Eligibility is determined prospectively by combining the best estimate of income and circumstances that will exist in the payment month for the budget group with the additional person included.
(b) If the additional person did not receive assistance in the previous month, the amount of assistance for the initial 2 months is determined by combining the additional persons prospective income with the budget month income for the remainder of the budget group, and subtracting this amount from the appropriate family size allowance. After the initial 2 months, retrospective budgeting is used for the entire budget group.
(c) If the additional person did not receive assistance in the previous month, but the persons income was deemed as an LRR, parent of an AFDC minor parent, stepparent or sponsor of an alien, the amount of assistance is determined by considering retrospectively the additional persons income during the budget month and the budget groups income during the budget month, excluding the income deemed from the individual being added.
(d) If the additional person received assistance in the previous month, the amount of assistance is determined by combining the additional persons retrospective income with the budget month income for the remainder of the budget group, and subtracting this amount from the appropriate family size allowance.
(e) If by adding this person the monthly assistance payment increases, a supplemental payment is authorized to reflect the needs of the additional person.
(f) A request for assistance by or for an additional person shall be processed within the time limits specified for applicants in Chapter 125 (relating to the application process).
