The overpaid individual is responsible for providing proof of monthly income, monthly
household expenses, and resources for the overpaid individual and any household family
members. The supporting documents must be no older than 3 months from the date that
we receive the waiver request, see GN 02250.100.
Expenses that are reasonably consistent with the overpaid individual's standard of
living are acceptable household expenses as long as they are ordinary and necessary.
Ordinary and necessary living expenses do not require supporting documents, unless
the expenses seem unusually high. For a list of ordinary and necessary living expenses,
see to GN 02250.100D1. To determine acceptable monthly household expenses, see GN 02250.100D2.
The Access for Financial Institutions (AFI) process requires an overpaid individual
to provide their authorization for us to obtain financial account information whenever
we need the information to make a defeats the purpose waiver determination. For more
information, refer to GN 02250.100D4.
