OLGT 2019-04: Economic Assistance (EAEDC and TAFDC) – Retroactive Payments Due to Budget Changes
As part of the budget process this year, the following changes occurred:
most ongoing TAFDC clients are eligible to receive a 100% Earned Income Disregard as long as the total household countable income does not exceed 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) for up to 12 cyclical payments;
the TAFDC asset limit was raised from $2,500 to $5,000 in all eligibility and benefit calculations;
the grant amount for TAFDC Non-Exempt Assistance units was increased 2.75%; and
the benefit amount for EAEDC clients in Living Arrangement D (those who are homeless) was increased to $303.70 for a single individual.
These changes were effective July 1, 2018 but did not occur until November 2018. As a result, some clients are owed retroactive benefits.
