For each additional person in the budget unit, $50.00 is added to the Need Standard.

If the difference is $.01 to $24.99, the household is ineligible to receive a Work First cash assistance payment. If a recoupment results in a payment of less than $25.00, the recoupment amount is recalculated to ensure a $25.00 payment.
