Setting up Two Cases: Caretakers
When a caretaker applies for Child Care for a child for whom he or she is not legally or financially responsible, the caretaker's income does not count toward the child's eligibility. When a caretaker is also applying for Child Care for his or her own child, you must create two different FACS cases unless using one case would result in a lower copayment. When you determine a household needs two cases, you must create an income-exempt case and income-eligible case. The income-exempt case is for the child for whom the caretaker is not legally or financially responsible. The income-eligible case is for children for whom the caretaker is legally and financially responsible (the client's own children).
