Children and unmarried minor teen parents must meet school attendance requirements established by your state’s guidelines.

To count toward a state’s work participation rate, single parents must participate in work activities for an average of 30 hours per week, or an average of 20 hours per week if they have a child under age six. Two-parent families must participate in work activities for an average of 35 hours a week or, if they receive Federal child care assistance, 55 hours a week.

Failure to participate in work requirements can result in a reduction or termination of a family’s benefits. States cannot penalize single parents with a child under six for failing to meet work requirements if they cannot find adequate child care.
