Marriage During Receipt of Assistance




Table of Contents


Marriage during the receipt of assistance does not apply to:


        Initial applications, because the marriage must take place while the caretaker is receiving assistance.


        Cases that have closed and are re-applying, for the same reason as that cited above.


        Couples who are married at the time of application.


        Spouses who have been out of the home and are returning.


Note: If a couple who has been legally divorced remarry during the receipt of assistance, the marriage during the receipt of assistance policy would apply.
