IM-26 02/03/00 NOTIFICATION OF AGED FOOD STAMP BENEFITS
|NOTIFICATION OF AGED FOOD STAMP BENEFITS|
|The notification letters for the food
stamp aged benefit and the process for sending them are revised.
The revised notification letters and process are for participants who have
not used their food stamp benefits for 30 or 90 days.
The "NOTIFICATION OF UNUSED FOOD STAMP BENEFITS" letter is sent to participants who have not accessed a benefit for more than 30 days. The letter is revised to include all months and amounts that meet this criteria in one letter. The letter will not be sent when:
The Food Stamp Program and Policy Unit is also working with Data Processing staff to develop a death closing code. Once the code is in production, aged benefit letters will not be sent to households that are closed using the death closing code. You will be advised when these projects are complete.
These letters are in production beginning with the January 25, 2000, aging process.
