IM-179 09/27/01 CLAIM PAYMENTS
|Currently, when households with more than
one claim make cash, check, or money order payments and do not state to
which claim(s) the payment applies, the payment is applied to one claim.
Effective September 24, 2001, these payments are divided among the programs
with claim balances. The payment is applied to:
Example: Mr. A sent a check to pay on a claim and did not state to which claim the payment applies. Mr. A has two food stamp claims, one Temporary Assistance claim, and one Medicaid claim. There are no judgments or promissory notes. The payment will be divided by three programs and one-third applied to each program.A county agreement is not considered a promissory note.
If the household wants the payment to be applied to a specific claim balance, the household must state to which claim the payment applies when the payment is made.
