OLGT 2018-44: Cross Programs: Earned and Unearned Income Procedures

The Online Guide has been revised and examples have been added to simplify earned and unearned income procedures across all programs. These revisions include the separation of specific self-employment topics into standalone pages. 
Established procedures remain unchanged with the exception of:  
  • earned income from corporation business types now being entered as wages into BEACON and no longer being entered as self-employment income for SNAP, TAFDC, or EAEDC. Procedures remain the same for any other income received from this source, the most common being dividend income. 
  • SNAP only clients who are paid in cash but have no business expenses are no longer considered self-employed; this income is now entered as wages into BEACON
