When a household is eligible for restored SNAP benefits and there is a claim balance, the restored benefits are applied to the outstanding claim balance. Restored benefits are paid if, through no fault of the household, there is an under-issuance. Complete a budget to determine the amount of the restored benefits. If there is a claim balance, the restored benefits are applied first to the claim, and the remainder issued to the household. Enter the amount of the claim balance, up to the amount of the restored benefits in the Offset field on WIBCA. Apply restored benefits each month to outstanding SNAP claims, until the claims are paid in full. For instructions refer to the SNAP WIBCA – Supplemental & Restored Benefits FAMIS Resources.
Complete a Claim Payment Transmittal (CARS-2) for the total amount of the offset using a credit transaction code 07, and send to the Division of Finance & Administration Services (DFAS).
