                                                                     PAY



                              3430 - MILITARY PAY



REQUIREMENT         Military pay such as housing allowances, subsistence allowances and
                    other entitlements are considered when determining eligibility for
                    assistance.
BASIC               Military pay is income received by anyone in any branch of the
CONSIDERATIONS      military-Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National
                    Guard and Reserves.

                    Military pay is treated as earned income when the individual in the
                    military is an AU member.

                    When an individual in the military is not in the AU but gives money
                    to the AU or authorizes money to be sent to the AU, that money is
                    counted as an unearned income contribution.
PROCEDURES          Verify all military pay. Use the Leave and Earnings Statement (LES)
                    to verify the type and amount of military income.

                    Chart 3430.1 on the following page provides information on the
                    treatment of military pay.

                    Determine if there are any debt repayments listed on the LES and
                    treat as follows:

                          if a debt repayment is for Advance Pay then deduct the
                           repayment from the gross income
                          if a debt repayment, listed as FININ or Debt Repayment on
                           the LES, is for a personal loan, such as for a car, count the
                           repayment as part of the gross income.

                    Do not allow federal tax, FICA, SGLI, Soldiers Home, or Insurance
                    as deductions or exclusions from income.

                    Allotments withheld for dependents not in the AU may be allowed as
                    a child support deduction. Refer to Section 3615, Deductions.
