|ANTICIPATING INCOME ON EXPEDITED SERVICE
FOOD STAMP MANUAL REVISION #15
|Effective immediately, the expedited screening
procedure for new sources of income is revised.
Anticipate income from a new source that has not been received prior to the application, if the individual is approved for that income or began working.
EXAMPLE 1: Mr. Ramone makes a timely reapplication for May on April 2. He states that he received an approval notice from the Social Security Administration stating he will receive SSI benefits of $530 starting in May. Anticipate $530 for the expedited service screening.Continue excluding income from a new source if the income has not been approved or the individual has not started employment.
EXAMPLE 3: Ms. Carlisle makes a second month application for June food stamp benefits on May 4. She states she applied for Unemployment Compensation Benefits (UCB). She has not yet received an approval notice, so do not anticipate the UCB on the expedited service screening.
