Guidance

Report the one digit code indicating whether the family received cash or other monetary assistance under Title IV of the Social Security Act (TANF). 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.

For Protective Services cases only, if income is not used to determine eligibility for protective service, this does not have to be reported.

Note that a zero is used for a specific reason; for “unknown/not reported” use a blank or space.
