Eight Hour Employment rules



In 12VAC30-120-920, Sections B. 2. a. (1) and B. 2. B. (1), please delete the eight-hour employment per week minimum for disregarding earned income.  The eight hour minimum is arbitrary and unfair. Why should a person who works less than 8 hours per week have earned income deducted when they have the same employment expenses as those who work 8-20 hours? This is very important for many of our young adults who are working.  Your immediate attention to helping us make this change, would be very much appreciated!  Sincerely, Gail Hadley-Goggin parent to Ashlan Hadley- Goggin, who is a 26 year old young adult, with Down Syndrome and Autism.  Looking forward to your support!
