N.J. Admin. Code § 10:69-10.27 - Income from eligible and noneligible individuals in the household

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

(a) For purposes of AFDC-related Medicaid program, in family groups living together, income of the spouse is considered available for the other spouse and income of a parent (natural or adoptive) is considered available for children under 18. If the spouse or parent is living with his or her spouse or children, respectively, income is considered available regardless of whether the spouse or natural or adoptive parent is noneligible. However, if a spouse or parent is receiving SSI benefits, including mandatory or optional State supplementary payments, then for the period for which such benefits are received, his or her income shall not be counted as income available to the eligible family.
(b) A noneligible individual is neither sanctioned nor required by law or regulation to be included in the eligible unit. When a noneligible individual is living in the household of an eligible unit, the income from that living arrangement to the eligible unit shall be treated in accordance with N.J.A.C. 10:69-10.3, if extensive personal services are provided, or N.J.A.C. 10:69-10.20. If the noneligible individual is a non-qualified alien parent (see N.J.A.C. 10:69-3.9 ), his or her income shall be considered available to the eligible unit and shall be calculated in accordance with the step-parent deeming formula in N.J.A.C. 10:69-10.33.
