 Don't know if this is the right group or even forum to post this, but thought I might ask you ladies that know a thing or 2 about Section 8 a question.  Do you know if Section 8 will count my son's wages into my budget when deciding my rent share?   I am asking this because several years ago a friend of mine was living in the projects (government housing) and when her kids became of age to work summer youth they did & housing figured those wages into her household budget.....I have tried to get hold of my caseworker to ask her & she is never available, only @ recert time and it is no where near my time for that.......my son is not working yet but has put in alot of applications and hopes to get a job soon and I would like to know about this ahead of time so that I can sort of prepare for it.....

It may vary by state too. I would definitely check with state worker

You are required by law to report any changes in the house hold income... it really depends on where you live and the laws of the state. If he is not giving you money for bills, then it shouldn't count unless it is above a certain amount... I will call my landlord and ask her to make sure, but I think that's right!

I always thought that until the child is 18 they can't count it as income. However, if they make enough $$ for a set period of time and can actually file taxes, that may be different.

 She is impossible to get a hold of as well as her supervisor...I have left a few vm just to inquire, but they never call you back unless it is around recert time...and it is no where near that time for me....
