Child Care Subsidy: New Job During Search Period

The following are instructions regarding when an individual acquires a new job during the job search period.

Previously job search child care was opened on October 5th, 2023 and closed effective January 5th, 2024. Later in December, the client reports she has secured a job and will start working December 8, 2023. The required verifications show she will receive her first full pay check on December 31, 2023.

The worker must code a new certification (action taken “open-1”) effective January 6, 2024 (the day after the date of closure). Since the client will receive a full pay check prior to January 1, full anticipated income must be considered for the recertification of care. The request date should not be changed (remains October 5, 2023).

Reopen the child care authorization and update the code to employment.
