    Covid-19 Income and the Means Test

    Just had a question to anyone that happens to know about the means test. I've read that the blanket stimulus payments (such as the $1200 per couple) don't count towards income, but what about the extra weekly amount ($600 per week in July, $300 a week in Aug / Sep)? What about any other federal extensions such as PEUC (Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation). Since these are federal programs do they not count as they are covid related? or does EVERYTHING count? Just wondering if anyone has been through this here, I'm tearing my hair out...

    There is nothing in the CARES Act that I have read which excludes unemployment income from the definition of "current monthly income" (CMI) when it comes to the means test. The only thing that was explicitly excluded from the CMI definition was the stimulus payment itself.
