Consult any regional POMS instructions for information on those State AFDC/ TANF agencies
that impose caps on family grant amounts either State-wide or in certain counties.
If the State or county imposes an AFDC/TANF cap and ineligible child deeming allocation
development is necessary (i.e., the eligible individual may be able to receive a higher
SSI payment if the deeming allocation applies), ask the issuing agency if any of the
ineligible children in the household are subject to an AFDC/TANF payment cap. If any
of the children are subject to a cap, apply the policy in B. above to determine the
net ineligible child deeming allocation in the case.
NOTE: Generally, if all members of an SSI "deeming household" are included in an AFDC/TANF
grant, development of the ineligible child deeming allocation should not be necessary
(since no income is deemable to the SSI claimant/recipient).
