York County Republicans Announce First PACENET Income Increase in 14 Years
HARRISBURG – The York County Republican Delegation to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, which consists of Reps. Seth Grove (R-Dover), Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York Township), Dawn Keefer (R-Dillsburg), Kate Klunk (R-Hanover), Keith Gillespie (R-Hellam) and House Appropriations Chairman Stan Saylor (R-Red Lion), is pleased to announce increases in the PACENET income limits, a goal they have long supported.

The General Assembly has long debated increasing the income limits to expand the PACENET program. Prior to this week, maximum income requirements for PACENET, the maximum income requirements are $23,500 for a single individual and $31,500 for a married couple.

The delegation issued the following statement:

“The main reason we have supported increasing the limits is because they have not been increased since 2004.

“To change this, the delegation strongly supported and voted for House Bill 270, and was pleased to see Gov. Tom Wolf finally sign the measure into law.

“Eligible Pennsylvanians across the state will be happy to learn that the new PACENET income limits are effective immediately. House Bill 270, now Act 87 of 2018, provides a $4,000 increase for both single and married Pennsylvanians. Total income for a single individual can now be between $14,500 and $27,500, and total combined income for a married couple can now be between $17,700 and $35,500.

“Even though the new income limits are now in effect, current PACENET brochures and paper applications can be used indefinitely. New paper applications will likely be available in the new year, but until then, constituents are able to complete the ‘old’ PACENET applications that are in our district offices and still be considered under the new income limits.”
