Citation: 3 N.J.A.R. 363
Decision Date: 1980
Synopsis: The Burlington County Welfare Board sought to terminate respon- dent's assistance under the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) and Food Stamp Programs. The AFDC assistance was termi- nated because the board claimed that the children eligible for assist- ance were not deprived of parental support and care. The Food Stamp Program participation was cancelled because the agency claimed that it was unable to verify the size of respondent's household due to inconsistent information provided by the household. The administrative law judge found that although respondent's spouse did not live in the home, the spouse did visit the home every day and take the children out to eat and to buy toys and clothing. Accordingly, the administrative law judge concluded that the eligible children were not deprived of parental support as required for eligibil- ity by N.J.A.C. 10:81-2.7(d) and affirmed the termination of assist- ance. The judge did conclude that the household was eligible for Food Stamp assistance since information as to the size of respondent's household was readily available and since it is the responsibility of the local board to determine the size of the household.
