FAQ: I have a child who will be living with me and my income will be from Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). Do I answer "yes" to Question #51? Are TANF or welfare benefits considered to be earned income?

You would answer yes to this question as long as you provide more than half of the child's support.

Note: TANF or welfare benefits that are paid to you are considered untaxed income and will be listed in Step 2, Worksheet A of the FAFSA.
