Earned Income Disregard II

SECTION 19.   Subsection (g) of said section 110 of said chapter 5 is hereby further amended by striking out the first paragraph and inserting in place thereof the following paragraph:-

(g) A recipient, or an applicant who has received transitional aid to families with dependent children within the last 4 calendar months, shall be eligible to have 50 percent of the remaining gross earned income, after work-related expenses but before dependent care deductions, disregarded for the entire period that any such recipient is eligible for assistance.

This section, together with the preceding section, changes the formula by which the amount of benefits under the Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children program is calculated by increasing the amount of earned income that may be retained by the recipient to a flat 50%, regardless of whether the recipient is exempt from work requirements.
