In order to determine the amount of income to be used in the calculation, you would obtain the highest income they ever received, the income from their most recent job, or you could use minimum wage if the non-working spouse did not have a college degree, significant job training, or much work experience.
Currently the monthly income for minimum wage is $1,324.57
