SUBJECT:

FOOD STAMP BUDGET SUMMARY AND INCOME SUMMARY DETAIL SCREEN CHANGE

DISCUSSION:

Effective July 18, 2005 the Income Summary Detail (INCUMM or FM33) screen is enhanced to display the Temporary Assistance grant being budgeted on food stamp budgets. This allows staff to see all income sources recorded for the EU.

The Food Stamp Budget Summary (FSBUDSUM or FM4A) and the food stamp Income Summary Detail (INCSUMM or FM33) screens are also enhanced to indicate when a Temporary Assistance grant has a recoupment and/or sanction.

These changes display on the screens after a food stamp eligibility determination is run in the system or when the system completes an eligibility determination the first day after payroll, as described in Memorandum IM-#44 dated May 10, 2005.

There is no change in policy and procedures regarding budgeting Temporary Assistance sanctions and/or recoupment for food stamps. Only the food stamp screens are changed to display if the Temporary Assistance grant is being recouped and/or sanctioned.

Food Stamp Budget Summary (FSBUDSUM or FM4A)

On the Food Stamp Budget Summary (FSBUDSUM or FM4A) screen, the reduced amount of Temporary Assistance displays, however the field is labeled UI TA Sanction, UI TA - Recoup, or UI TA- San-Recoup. An example is highlighted below:

Screen Shot of Budget Summary

To determine the amount of the Temporary Assistance grant that was sanctioned or recouped, press F14=INCSUM to view the Income Summary Detail (FM33) screen.

The Income Summary Detail (INCSUMM or FM33) screen is now programmed to display the Temporary Assistance grant amount that is budgeted in the EU.

The screen displays the Temporary Assistance grant as follows:

In the highlighted example below, the gross Temporary Assistance grant of $292.00 is being reduced by $94.00. The screen shows the combined amount of sanction and recoupment being deducted from the Temporary Assistance grant under the OHE/Recoup column and the Exclude Reason column displays both reasons as sanction/rec. The Temporary Assistance grant shown on the budget is $198 ($292 - $94).

Always review the Food Stamp Budget Summary (FSBUDSUM or FM4A) screen prior to authorizing a case action. From the Budget Summary screen press F14=INCSUM to view the Income Summary Detail (INCSUMM or FM33) screen to ensure income you expect to be budgeted is included in the budget. If the income is incorrect, return to the appropriate screen and correct the inaccurate information. From the Budget Summary screen press F15=EXPSUM to review the Expense Summary (EXPSUMM or FM34) screen to ensure expenses you expect to be budgeted are included in the budget. If the expense is incorrect, return to the appropriate screen and correct the inaccurate information.
