In response to inquiries from numerous readers, LNN has learned that childcare services such as CHS will be counting all forms of income used for living expenses when determining income eligibility. This includes but is not limited to: Kollel stipends, Shemiras Sedarim, possibly test awards and the like. These forms of income are also factored by WIC, SNAP, Get Covered NJ, and NJ FamilyCare, although NJ FamilyCare is not terminating eligible cases until the end of the national health emergency, which will last at least until January of 2023.
CHS has become stricter about business income. In general, they are disqualifying any family with partnership, LLC, or corporation income (regardless of whether the income is being used to fulfill the work requirement). Also, anyone with Schedule C income is disqualified until a tax return transcript is available.
