Unearned income is money which is received for reasons other than the current work efforts of an individual. No earned income exclusions or work expense deductions may be applied to unearned income as defined. In the Food Stamp Program the standard deductions and dependent care, shelter, and medical deductions are to be applied to unearned income as appropriate [see § 1240-01-04-.17(8)]. Unearned income is considered available to meet food/maintenance needs as described in previous sections.
