[NEEDS INPUT] Households with more than one Sim all start with 20k funds

[ Edited ]
Game Changer

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.54.120.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All content thru Moschino SP
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Create a household of any number of Sims. Make note of the amount of the starting funds.
What happens when the bug occurs? Starting funds are 20k no matter how many Sims are in the household.
What do you expect to see? Pro rated amount of Simoleons based on number of Sims in the household. Eight Sims should have more starting funds than a household of one or two.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Not sure exactly when this started but noticed it after the 08August2019 patch.
Newly installed Origin and all Sims 4 content. Game has been repaired thru Origin and all cache files were deleted.
Households tested:
Roomies TellMyStory Four YA.
Lewis TellMyStory One YA.
Charley TellMyStory One YA.
Bunz One YA, one child and one toddler.
Blanders *Skilled* Two adults, one YA and two teens.
Nerd Herd Audition Eight YA.
In each of these cases the beginning funds was 20k but should have been different based on household size.

Note: The households labeled TellMyStory #TS4TellMyStory were crafted in CAS Story Mode Minimum skills and CAS Story assigned jobs.
Initially their household funds varied when first created and placed in game. They all now show 20k Simoleons as starting funds for their households.

I have this issue when I start a new save but when I use an existing save I did not notice any issues with a multi-sim household not having proper funds. I too have no idea when the issue started in my game as well. Vanilla game and fully patched.

I looked at that thread. But this seems different. I am either creating new households (not CAS story mode) or downloading my existing households.

They are being placed on their own lot and not being combined with other households already in the save.

@EuphorialQueen I tested this on a new save in my game now and I got §33'0000 with 8 Sims.

You say they were initially fine. What exactly does that mean ? Are they older families you have placed in the library or did you create them just now ?

The top three pictured Nerd Herd Audition (Oldest), Blanders *Skilled* and Bunz are from my gallery. 
They had funds that were more than 20k when initially placed. The remaining three shown were all CAS Story Mode. I did not expect them to retain their bonus funds but sis expect something other that the 20k allowed.

Uploaded the newly created Chu family to the gallery.

Opened a new save and downloaded the Chu household into a new save.
The downloaded family has only §20,000 to start.

Based on this test I would say this is an issue with households shared to the gallery.
