Wages: For the individual and deemors, use any evidence that is presented and allegations
of when wages were received. Using that information and amount on the DEQY, determine
the allocation of wages during the alleged period of work for the year. If the period
of work is unclear, allocate wages over the entire year.
AFDC: Accept the individual's allegation of when AFDC was received, including the termination
date, and the number in the grant. Use the historical charts for each State's AFDC
program showing maximum grant for family size, SI ATL00501.500, Exhibit A (North Carolina) and Exhibit B (Tennessee). Determine the incremental
portion using the chart.
VA: Request that the VARO provide their adjusted payment rates (what should have been
paid) for this period. Similar to our MBR, the adjusted payment rates are available
on their computers rather than actual payment rates for retroactive periods. The VARO
can use the adjusted payment rates to compute dependent augmentation rates. Annotate
the SSA-L1103 to say:
“Hyatt or Samuels Case. Please provide the adjusted payment rates (rate of pay) for
the period (beginning date) to (month before the 2 year period prior to the initiation
of development date).”
SSA-L1103's should be sent to the VARO through the parallel field office.
Miscellaneous Sources of Possible Income: Accept the individual's allegation of the amount, when received, and intended recipient.
For alleged loans, no contact with the lender is required.
Deeming: Do not input information about ineligible children in the unearned income
field of the SSR if the information does not affect the deeming computation, e.g.,
parent has needs based payment.
Interest: Do not count interest income less than $7 a month.
