State AFDC rules regarding the treatment of cohabitors: 1993
This paper reports the results of a survey of state AFDC rules regarding the treatment of unrelated cohabitors in households containing AFDC units. We examine state treatment of cash and in- kind contributions by cohabitors and find that the AFDC grant is usually not affected if the cohabitor makes in-kind contributions toward household food or shelter expenses. However, the grant generally is reduced if the cohabitor contributes cash to the AFDC unit unless the cash is for shared household expenses. In addition, a few states have specific policies toward cohabitors that are not based upon initial evidence of cohabitor contributions.
