1110.020.50 Averaged Income as an Excluded Resource

IM-#14 February 23, 2007

Do not count money prorated or averaged as income, such as self-employment or farm income, as a resource. If the money is in an account with income that is not prorated or averaged, determine the non-excluded amount as follows:

Enter the entire resource amount on the Liquid Resources (FMW0) screen. Enter the amount that is excluded in the Excluded Amount field and use AI - averaged income as the Excl Rsn (excluded reason). Record a comment why that portion is excluded.

Always review the Financial Resource Detail Summary (FMWG) screen prior to authorizing a case action to ensure resources you expect to be excluded are excluded in the determination. From the Action Authorization (FM3H) screen, press F15=RESOURCE to view the Financial Resource Detail Summary (FMWG) screen. If the resource is incorrect, select the resource and press F6=DETAILS to return to the appropriate screen and correct the inaccurate information.
