1142.055.15.30 Expunged SNAP Benefits

IM-65 July 12, 2023; IM-142 December 2, 2005

Expunged SNAP benefits are automatically used to reduce SNAP claim balances. The expunged benefit file is run against the CARS database monthly. Benefits that are expunged each month are applied to the claim balances the next month. Expunged SNAP benefits that exceed the balance of the claim only have the amount of the balance reduced. Negative balances and refunds due to expunged benefits are not given. After this process runs each month, SNAP claim reductions are posted on the Display Debtor Payments/Transactions (OVPT) screen. Transaction code 14 is used to identify these claim balance reductions.
