Qualifying for Plan First also depends on household income and family size. For your family size, count the number of people included on your federal taxes. If you don’t file taxes, count how many children and stepchildren under age 19 live in your home. Add yourself if you are the mother, father or stepparent of the children. Then add your husband or wife. For example, if you have 4 children and/or stepchildren under age 19 living in your home, plus yourself and your husband, your family size is 6. We determine eligibility based on monthly income. The current monthly income limit for a family of 6 is $5,461.
