Chapter 47 . Hearings
Section 150. Determination of General Relief financial eligibility

7 AAC 47.150. Determination of General Relief financial eligibility

(a) Financial eligibility for General Relief assistance exists only if the need standard exceeds monthly net income, as determined under this section.

(b) Need is determined by use of the following table:



Number of Maximum Monthly Persons Need Standard 1 $300 2 400 3 500 4 600 5 700 $100 must be added for each additional person.

(c) Monthly net income is determined by

(1) counting all income earned or unearned, from any source, except payments made under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, received during the calendar month in which application is made, and all income reasonably expected to be received in time to meet the specific needs (income received weekly is multiplied by 4.3, that received every two weeks by 2.15, that received twice monthly by 2, and that received monthly by 1);

(2) subtracting all payroll deductions required by the employer, including federal and state income tax, FICA, unemployment insurance, union dues, insurance premiums, and retirement, from gross earned income, and subtracting from earned or unearned income voluntary health insurance premiums which are paid for persons included in the household as described in (d) of this section; and

(3) not counting income received in the month just before the calendar month in which application is made, but considering this a resource under sec. 160 of this chapter.

(d) Persons who are included in the household, and who will therefore have their financial needs, income, and resources considered in determining financial eligibility, include the applicant, all persons related to the applicant by blood, marriage, or adoption who reside with him, and all unrelated persons whose needs are included in the request for assistance and who would benefit directly from the requested assistance, or who would benefit directly even if their needs are not included.
