1145.000.00 Disqualification for Intentional Program Violation

1145.010.15 Food Stamp Program Participation While Awaiting a Hearing

IM-140 November 30, 2005

A pending administrative disqualification hearing does not affect the individual’s or the EU’s right to be certified and participate in the program. Since the agency cannot disqualify an EU member for an IPV until the hearing official finds the individual member has committed an IPV, determine eligibility and benefit level of the EU in the same manner as for any other EU.
