  1. I am not licensed I your state but I can provide some general information.

    This is a good question and one that I have never heard before. Do you get cash benefits or is it just for tuition?

    Good luck.

  2. The cash payments are probably going to be considered income, but the expenses are offsetting them. These transfers should not end up with a net gain in disposable income. Do you think it will affect the means test?
