        Initial applications, because the marriage must take place while the caretaker is receiving assistance.

 

        Cases that have closed and are re-applying, for the same reason as that cited above.

 

        Couples who are married at the time of application.

 

        Spouses who have been out of the home and are returning.

 

Note: If a couple who has been legally divorced remarry during the receipt of assistance, the marriage during the receipt of assistance policy would apply.
