How to use this table:

 

1.                  If the non-custodial parent (NCP) pays room and board, determine the food allowance for the NCP’s total household size.

 

2.                  Subtract the food allowance from the room and board amount to arrive at the room allowance only.

 

3.                  Enter this amount in section F; line 12 of the Arrearage Assessment Computation form.

 

            EXAMPLE:

            Household size = 5                   Room and Board = $1,300.00

            Food Allowance for 5 = $574.00

            Final Room and Board allowance = $726.00 ($1,300.00 - $574.00 = $726.00)

 

NOTE:  The figures in Table 2 are derived from the “Food” section of the Standard Needs Budget (SNB) of 1995 plus 31% inflation rate since 1995 according to the Historical US Inflation Rate.
