SUBJECT: MANDATORY EXPEDITE SCREENING QUESTION ADDED TO FSINTRVW (FM1B) SCREEN FOR FOOD STAMP APPLICATIONS
MANUAL REVISION #16
The purpose of this memo is to introduce a new mandatory field on the FSINTRVW (FM1B) screen. Staff who register initial or late non-timely recertification Food Stamp applications in FAMIS, will need to determine if a participant is potentially expedite eligible.
If a participant answers “YES” to any of the below three questions on the Food Stamp application, this indicates the participant has been screened as potential expedite eligible. If the questions are left blank, enter an “N” as the Food Stamp application has been screened but not potential expedite eligible.
The FSINTRVW (FM1B) screen has been updated to include a new question that staff must answer when registering a Food Stamp application.
If a Food Stamp application has been screened as a potential expedite application, staff must mark “Y” to indicate the application was screened and found potentially expedite eligible and make a comment to reflect why the “Y” indicator was used.
NOTE: No benefits are issued until an interview has been completed and the participant deemed eligible for Food Stamp benefits.
If the Food Stamp application was screened and not found a potential expedite application, staff must mark “N” and make a comment to reflect why the “N” indicator was used.
