SUBJECT: CHANGE TO FAMIS FORM FA-110 AND MAILING OF ELECTRONIC BENEFIT TRANSFER (EBT) CARDS FOR SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (SNAP) EXPEDITE BENEFITS
This memorandum is to notify staff of changes to FAMIS form FA-110 Expedited Food Stamp notice and the mailing of EBT cards for initial Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) applications screened as expedited.
FAMIS form FA-110 has the following updates:
- The words “Your interview may be postponed for the expedited issuance(s) but you must be interviewed for on-going Food Stamp benefits” are removed.
- The removed words are replaced with “You may need to complete an interview for Food Stamps.”
- A new statement: “*Your Electronic Benefit Card (EBT) will not work UNLESS approved for benefits” is added.
EBT cards will be issued on SNAP cases screened as expedite that have not had an active EBT card in ebtEDGE within the past 365 days.
NOTE: Expedited EBT cards must not be mailed to an address of “Homeless”. Failure to enter a mailing address on the Person Detail (PRSNDTL) screen on an initial expedite application, when the address on Supercase Address/Supercase Transfer (ADDRESS) screen is Homeless, results in undeliverable mail.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
