KidsWell Partners Issue Alert About Incorrectly Calculating Household Income

CCF, NHeLP: The Georgetown Center for Children and Families, the National Health Law Program, and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, issued an alert that has been incorrectly counting social security income for tax dependents. The brief notes that under federal rules, the social security income of children and other tax dependents only counts if the dependent is required to file a tax return, but that has been counting it even if the dependent is not required to file taxes.
