Applications submitted by mail, drop off, or electronic transmission shall be accepted and processed the same as an in-person filing of an application. The application date is the date the SIGNED application is received in the FSD office. If an electronic or dropped off application is received after normal business hours or on a weekend or holiday, the application date is the next working day.

When it is determined that an individual is a mandatory member on an existing application, add that person to the assistance group using the same date the other household members have listed on the APPDETL screen.
