Prorating Benefits

Subtract the date of application from 31 and divide the result by 30. Multiply the result by a full month benefit amount.Round down to the nearest dollar.

EXAMPLE The date of application is the 20th of the month. The assistance unit is eligible for $200 for a full month. 
31 - 20 = 11
11 ÷ 30 = .367
0.367 x $200 = $73.40
$73.40 = $73.00 (the prorated amount)
