Report Income

What income do I report?

Washington Healthplanfinder will only ask for types of income that are countable when determining what coverage you’re eligible for.

Common examples of income you’ll be asked to include are:

  • Income from salaries, wages, tips, and commissions
  • Self-employment income minus business expenses
  • Unemployment compensation
  • Title II Social Security benefits (including retirement, disability, and benefits for survivors)
  • Rental income
  • Dividends and royalties
    Washington Healthplanfinder will only ask for the income and deductions needed to calculate your eligibility. If you don’t see a place to enter a type of income you get, like child support, it’s because that income type is not needed and you don’t need to enter it.

Common examples of income you don’t need to include are:

  • Cash assistance from other agencies or supplemental security income (SSI)
  • Child support payments
  • Time loss benefits
  • Title IV-E and state foster care payments
  • Some veteran’s benefits
  • Learn more about reporting income.
  • Federal Stimulus Check*

*Do not include the stimulus check when you enter your income. The stimulus check is also known as the "Recovery Rebate" or "Economic: Impact Payment". The federal stimulus payment is not income for purposes of applying for health and dental coverage through Washington Healthplanfinder. You do not need to report any check or payment amount you receive from the federal government in your application.
