Obtain needed verification and determine that the EU is eligible to receive food stamp benefits. Enter information about eligibility factors in FAMIS. FAMIS applies the Food Stamp Program rules to the data entered and provides a decision about EU eligibility and benefit amount. Review the system decision to ensure accurate data entry and authorize the case action. Review the Food Stamp Budget Summary (FM4A), the Income Summary Detail (FM33), and the Expense Summary (FM34) to ensure the correct income and expenses were included and the benefit is what the worker expected. If any information is incorrect, update the information and run a new eligibility determination.
