Calculate your household income

How to calculate your household income

For hourly workers, take your hourly wage and multiply that by the average hours worked weekly. Then multiply that number by 52 (weeks per year) to get your annual gross income (before taxes).
Example:
  • $13.50 (hourly rate) x 40 (average hours worked per week) = $540
  • $540 x 52 (weeks per year) = $28,080 (This is your annual gross income)
Tip: If your household income changes from month to month, take your combined income from the last month and multiply it by 12 to calculate your average gross annual household income. Please call us at 800-422-4012 if you have questions or need help applying.
