6123 Full Month Budgeting Method - Full-Month budgeting method is used when the income has been determined to NOT be reasonably compatible and a full month of income verification is available. A prospective amount shall be determined and used in place of reported income. The client attestation is not used. A full month of income verification exists when the agency has verification of 30 days of consecutive earnings received by the wage earner within the period beginning 30 days prior to the application date and ending on the date the application is processed for new applications. When processing a review or case change, the pay verification provided must be from the three months prior to the month the Reasonable Compatibility test is initially run.

This “full month” of income is what is used to determine the prospective amount. 30 days’ worth of income is represented by 4 weekly checks, 2 biweekly checks, 2 semi-monthly checks or 1 monthly check. If an additional weekly or bi-weekly check is received within the 30-day period, it shall be included in the prospective determination if available, but is not required to meet the definition of full-month budgeting. Additional checks submitted outside of the 30-day window are not used.
