How do I determine my family size?

You only need to include as part of your family size, yourself, and if applicable, your spouse and/or children. You do not count your parents and/or siblings. If you live with a partner, the partner is not counted when determining family size.Family can include: minors living on their own, a married couple with or without children, one parent with one or more children, a married couple sharing the home of a husband's or wife's parents, and two related married couples sharing a single household.


  • Count family size as "1":
    • You are single with no children, regardless if you are living with your parents or other relatives.
    • You are single with no children and living with a partner.
  • Count family size as "2":
    • You are married with no children.
    • You are a parent with one child.
    • You are a parent with one child and that child is away at school.
  • Count family size as "3":
    • You are married with one child.
    • You are married with one child and that child is away at school.
    • You are a parent with two children.
