IM-37 June 17, 2011

Temporary Assistance (TA) recipients who meet any of the following criteria for exemption prior to referral by FSD will not be referred to MWA. If the condition occurs after enrollment in MWA, the case manager must obtain verification of the exempt criteria and record it in the MWA System; then, refer the recipient back to FSD for case management using an appropriate alert. (See “Alerts Policy”).

Recipients who are determined exempt from participation in work activities may volunteer to participate at any time.

Descriptions of the exempt categories and appropriate documentation for each follow. (Categories are designated by Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) regulations and state policy.)
