Use a MSSICS Report of Contact (DROC) screen to document whether the income, resource, or both are excludable.
EXAMPLE of DROC entry: “Per NAPA precedent, the (Name of the Tribe) elder payment is excludable from income. Normal resource counting rules apply.”
If the income is excludable, accept the recipient’s allegation of the amount and receipt date. If the recipient’s allegation is consistent with the information on NAPA, there is no further development required.
