Child Care Reporting--Family Income Sources


Family Income Sources (CDD-801B only)

Description

The Family Income Sources describe the source(s) of the family income whether or not they were used to determine eligibility. Exception: If this is a Child Protective Services case and income was not used to determine eligibility, select "No" as the response to all six of the listed income sources.

Note: The Family Income Sources listed here, together with the response to "TANF/CalWORKs Cash Aid Recipient," will capture all income sources for the family.

Where to Find It

On the CD-9600 form, look in box B, "Family Income Sources" in Section III, "Family Adjusted Gross Monthly Income and Size."

Rules and Guidelines

  • This information is required for each income source listed.
  • There are six income sources:

A - Employment

B - State-only CalWORKs (alien or two-parent) Note: If the family is a two-parent CalWORKs family and the report month is October 1999 or after, the family is receiving CalWORKs under the state-only two-parent program, even if this is not entered on the CD-9600 form.

C - Housing voucher

D - Food stamps

E - Other Federal Cash Assistance (e.g., SSI, Social Security)

F - Other Income Source Note: Include child support payments in this category. Do not include federal TANF/CalWORKs here since this already was entered under a different question.

  • Note: Do not include federal TANF/CalWORKs cash assistance here since this already was entered under a different question.
  • For each of these sources, there are only three choices:

Yes - The family received income from this source.

No - The family did not receive any income from this source.

Unavailable - Only allowed for certain CPS cases where income was not used to determine eligibility.
