N.J. Admin. Code § 10:69-10.21 - Contributions of support

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) Obligatory contributions to the support of one or more members of the eligible unit shall be recognized as unearned income, regardless of whether such contributions are in cash or in kind. (See 10:69-10.42, Acceptable forms of support.)
(b) When shelter is being provided by a legally responsible relative (LRR) who has been determined by the CWA IV-A unit to have a capacity to provide support, the actual cash value shall, whenever possible, be determined and recognized as unearned income to the eligible unit. Where the actual value cannot be established, and is not stipulated by a court order to be made in an identifiable cash amount to a third party, the monthly monetary values shall be recognized according to Schedule VI in N.J.A.C. 10:69-10.42(c) and shall not exceed the LRR's evaluated capacity.
(c) Non-obligatory contributions, other than occasional gifts identified in N.J.A.C. 10:69-10.22, shall be recognized as unearned income only when made in cash to one or more members of the eligible unit. This does not apply to LRRs who have an evaluated capacity to support.
