If the EU reports a change which will result in ineligibility or a decreased allotment, enter the information in FAMIS. If the reported change does not meet an exemption to Advance Notice of Adverse Action, the EU is given ten calendar days advance notice of the adverse action.

The ten calendar days begin with the day after the mailing of the notice and ends on the 10th day. If a hearing is not requested, action is taken on the 11th calendar day. If the 10th day falls on a weekend or holiday, the notice will expire on the next working day and the 11th day is the date entered on the notice.

The case is closed effective the month following the month the notice of adverse action expires.
