Government Benefits: Reporting Changes in Household Size or Income

If you are applying for or receiving a government benefit designed for low-income people, promptly report all changes in household size and income. 
If you do not, your worker later could demand that you pay back the benefits and could cut you off the program for a long time. 
If you aren’t sure whether to report a change, report it!
