To determine eligibility or amount of payment, count income which is actually available to the applicant/recipient (a/r) and which the a/r can legally make available for his/her support and maintenance.

The base period is a set time for verification of income when determining eligibility for the payment review period. Certain incomes have different base periods. To calculate the base period, divide the monthly cost by the number of months.
