Proof of income or eligibility using one of these: W-2 or 1040 tax form; Four most recent pay stubs; TANF or SSI documentation; Unemployment letter; Foster child documentation; Child Support documentation — If you work and also receive child support or have other income, you must provide proof of that additional income.
