Report the one digit code indicating whether the family received income via employment during the report month. Even if this source of income is disregarded for eligibility determination purposes, the correct answer is “yes” for a family that received income from this source in the reporting month.

Except under some unusual circumstances, if Data Element #6 is 1, 3, 6, 8 (involving employment), Data Element #10 should be 1. For Protective Services cases only, if income is not used to determine eligibility for protective service, this does not have to be reported.

Except for unusual circumstances, if Data Element #10 is 1 (Yes), Data Element #9 should be greater than zero. Note that a zero is used for a specific reason; for “unknown/not reported” use a blank or space.
