On Dec. 27, 2020, the President signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2021. This Act excludes federal pandemic unemployment compensation payments authorized under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act from consideration as income for the purposes of determining FDPIR eligibility.
The purpose of this memorandum is to provide guidance regarding the rounding procedures to be used when determining the total resources and net monthly income of FDPIR applicant households.
This memorandum provides clarification regarding payments made to individuals under PL 101-426, the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act, as amended. Those payments shall not be counted as income or resources for the purpose of determining eligibility for participation in FDPIR.
