ACL 14-08: CalWORKs Program: New Category Of Disability-Based Unearned Income – Veteran’s Disability Compensation Benefits (1/29/14)

With the passage of AB 1094, CalWORKs has added Veteran’s Disability Benefits to the list of disability income.  This income is subject to the $225 disregard.  The law was effective 1/1/14, so counties must issue any corrective payments, by recalculating the grant the next time the CWD takes action on the case (e.g. processing a SAR 7, annual redetermination, voluntary report from the AU, etc.) or when it becomes known to the CWD. This includes rescinding any discontinuances if the failure to provide the disregard caused the discontinuance.  [Download]
