Document an eligible child's income and verify when necessary following general income
rules for an eligible individual. If any ineligible children in the household have
income, and the ineligible spouse or parent has income that is subject to deeming,
verify and document the ineligible child's income (see Statement of Income and Resources
(SSA-8010-BK)-General, SI 01310.600B.1. and SI 01310.600B.3.c. ).
However, when the alleged income exceeds the amount of the ineligible child allocation
(i.e., no ineligible child allocation applies for that ineligible child), document
the allegation, but do not verify the income unless the income would be subject to
the student child earned income exclusion.
In both initial claims and posteligibility situations, accept an allegation when any
ineligible child living in the household has no income. In posteligibility situations,
do not redevelop income unless a change is alleged or there is a reason to believe
a change has occurred.
