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

(a) For NJ FamilyCare-Children's Program-Plan A, the term "household unit" means those persons whose income is counted in the determination of eligibility under the provisions of this chapter. The following persons, if they reside with the program applicant or beneficiary, shall be considered members of the household unit:
1. The child;
2. The child's natural or adoptive parents;
3. The child's blood-related siblings, including those of half-blood, and adoptive siblings under the age of 21; and
4. At the option of the authorized agent or the applicant, the child's stepparent, whether or not there is a common child. If the sponsored relative or applicant elects not to include the stepparent in the household unit, his or her income will not be included in the determination of eligibility except to the extent that he or she makes it available to the eligible members, and the child's spouse, if applicable.
(b) Any person who is a recipient of TANF or SSI or who would have been eligible for AFDC using the rules in existence as of July 16, 1996 will not be included in the household unit. Any person whose income and resources have been deemed to be an eligible SSI beneficiary shall likewise not be included in the household unit unless that person is applying for benefits under this chapter.
(c) Any person in (a)1 above shall be included in the household unit even though he or she is in an AFDC-related Medically Needy budget unit in accordance with 10:70-3.5. Likewise, any person in (a)1 above required by 10:70-3.5 to be included in an AFDC-related Medically Needy budget unit, shall be included in that budget unit even if he or she is included in a household unit under the provisions of this section.
