Income

What is Income?

Income meaning As defined by the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA), income is any periodic form of payment to an individual, regardless of source, including wages, salaries, commissions, bonuses, worker’s compensation, disability, pension, or retirement program payments and interest. All income (except imputed income) is subject to withholding for child support, pursuant to a child support order, but is protected by Consumer Credit Protection Act limits, both State and federal.
