SUBJECT: VERIFICATION OF REGAINED ELIGIBILITY FOR THE FOOD STAMP PROGRAM
MANUAL REVISION #43
This memo provides clarification to the Food Stamp Policy Manual section, 1105.035.35 Identifying and Tracking Non-Work Months.
The policy manual has been updated with CLARIFICATION information regarding how to address verifications when determining regained eligibility.
If the individual claims yes to, “Have you or will you have worked or participated in a work program for 80 hours in a 30 day period?”, enter a “Y” on the Training/Work Requirements (FMMR) screen.
- When “Y” is entered on the FMMR screen, expedite benefits are allowed to be issued when otherwise eligible.
Verification that the individual has regained Food Stamp eligibility is required prior to issuing ongoing benefits.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
