SUBJECT: APPOINTING AN AUTHORZED REPRESENTATIVE (IM-6AR) REVISION
FORM REVISION #9
This memorandum announces that the Appointing an Authorized Representative (IM-6AR) form has been updated to comply with HB 1250 (2018) known as the Missouri Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act. In addition to the actions already available, this form now offers participants the option to grant access to their online communications with FSD while they are living or after they are deceased.
When a participant grants access to online information for the Food Stamp, Temporary Assistance or MO HealthNet for the Aged, Blind or Disabled programs with an IM-6AR, staff should enter a comment on the Representative Detail screen in FAMIS. When a participant grants access to online information for the Family MO HealthNet (MAGI) programs, staff should enter a comment on the primary member’s person page under the contact tab.
NOTE: Continue to accept IM-6AR forms with revision date of April 2017 or after.
- Review this memorandum and new manual sections with appropriate staff.
- Review the updated IM-6AR Instructions.
- Begin using the new form immediately
