WAC 388-450-0225

Effective November 1, 2003

WAC 388-450-0225 How are my assistance unit's benefits calculated for the first month I am eligible for cash assistance?

  1. To calculate your AU’s cash benefit for your first month’s benefits, we compare your AU’s countable income to the payment standard as described in WAC 388-450-0162.

  2. Even if your AU has countable income over the payment standard, you may still get additional requirements.

  3. If your countable income is less than the payment standard, we prorate your grant amount based on the date you are eligible.

  4. We do not prorate any approved additional requirements. 

  5. We prorate your grant by:

    1. Dividing your AU's grant amount by the number of days in the first month of eligibility; and

    2. Multiplying the result in (5)(a) by the number of days from the date of eligibility to the last day of the month.
