Temporary Assistance participants may visit out-of-state for up to 60 days without interruption of benefits. It is the claimant’s responsibility to notify FSD of absence, temporary address, and intended time of return.
If the participant has not contacted FSD at the planned time of return, send advance notice requesting contact. If no contact is made the case can be closed.
If absence is prolonged beyond the 60-day period and is due to the physical or mental condition of the recipient or spouse, the claimant must provide a physician’s statement confirming the existence of a physical or mental condition. Continue for a reasonable limit not to exceed 90 days total.
