1141.010.00 Acting on Unclear Information From Certain Data Matches

IM-06 January 19, 2023

The agency periodically receives matches from several data sources. These matches are used to verify and ensure that benefits are not issued to individuals who may not be eligible for SNAP benefits due to a variety of reasons. These data matches are not considered verified upon receipt.

Note: Review 1140.005.60 Changes Considered Verified Upon Receipt for a Household to see what types of information are considered verified upon receipt.

Most data matches are considered unclear and any SNAP household member matched must be given an opportunity to clarify the situation.
