Income Contact and the Certification History Tab
If multiple members of a household are certified on the same date, the staff person who entered the income is not recorded next to Income Contact in the Certification History tab for the members for whom HuBERT automatically copied the income. The Income Contact Staff ID is only recorded for the one member who had the income entered into their CGS.
For example, in the print screen below, a non-breastfeeding woman and her infant were both certified on 1/3/17. Only mom has a record next to Income Contact because the income record was entered into mom's CGS and the system auto-saved it for the infant.

The Pending Proof of Income Checkbox Must Be Selected to Limit Issuance to One Month
Federal Regulations require participants who are pending proof of income to be limited to one month of issuance until proof of income can be verified. HuBERT will limit issuance to these participants but only if the Pending Proof of Income checkbox on the Income Calculator screen is selected. It is not enough to select the pending proof options from the proof drop-down lists for either adjunctive eligibility or traditional income assessment; you must also select the Pending Proof of Income checkbox.
You must select the Pending Proof of Income checkbox when selecting Pending Proof - 30 Day from the Adjunctive Eligibility proof drop-down lists.
You must also select the Pending Proof of Income checkbox when selecting **PENDING PROOF** from the income calculator Proof of Income drop-down.
The Pending Proof of Income checkbox is a system flag that, when selected, notifies HuBERT to display the CPA Review alert reminding us that proof of income is required:
It also limits the participant’s benefit issuance to one month so that you can’t over-issue benefits when the participant is pending proof of income.

You Can Use the Prescreen Calculator to Assess Income if Participant Not Currently Certified
The Add Income Screening Contact button is disabled in the Income History tab in the Participant Folder if the participant is not in a current cert. If you need to assess a participant's income and they aren't in a current cert, you can use the Income Calculator in Prescreen.
You don't have to enter any other information into Prescreen to open it. Simply enter the income information (you will be required to select a Proof of Income) and enter the Household Size. Click the OK button to prompt the system to assess income eligibility. Click OK on the eligibility/ineligibility message(s) and then click Cancel to exit the Prescreen.
