Your Money

Job Income

 

We’re asking this question about money to find out if you may be able to get help with food, health care, prescription drugs and other benefits.

 

It’s very important to tell us about all of the money you get. When you take the next step and apply for benefits, you may need to provide proof of your income. If you don’t know the exact answer to a money question, give the best answer you can. Keep in mind giving us more accurate information allows us to give you more accurate answers..

To answer this question, check the box for each adult who has a job right now, or is self-employed.

You may notice that we're only asking about jobs for people 18 and older. In most cases, the income that children under 18 have from a job won't count, so we're not asking about them here.

Be sure to check the box if someone is self-employed. Self-employment is money you earn directly from your own business, rather than getting money by working for an employer.

If no one in your home gets money from a job right now, check the box for "No one."
