2030.015.00 CHANGE PROCESSING FOR APPLICANT ELIGIBILITY UNITS

Applicants must report all changes affecting their eligibility or benefits during the application interview.

For applications, changes that occur:

  • between the filing date and the interview date (if different and required) must be acted on as part of the application eligibility determination.
  • after the interview, but before an eligibility decision is made, must be acted on as part of the application eligibility determination.

If a change is reported while the application is pending, enter the change. If verification is required, give the eligibility unit a Request for Information allowing the eligibility unit ten days to provide the required verification.  It may be necessary to pend the application beyond the application due date.

Discuss with the eligibility unit the reporting requirements and how to determine when their income exceeds 85% of the state median income.
