The amount of DFISA paid will equal the difference between the rate of social security income support payment and the rate of payment the recipient would receive if the DVA adjusted disability pension was exempt from the income test but included for RA calculations. DFISA is either taxable income or a tax-free pension or benefit within the definition of 'adjusted taxable income' under the family assistance law.
