IM-24 03/04/97 CLARIFICATION OF
REIMBURSEMENT (IAR) PROCEDURES
|CLARIFICATION OF INTERIM ASSISTANCE REIMBURSEMENT
|Recently, the Social Security Administration
conducted a monitoring review of the Interim Assistance Reimbursement (IAR)
procedures of the Division of Family Services (DFS) and the Division of
Budget and Finance (DBF). As a result of this review it was
determined that the IM-77 Interim Assistance Reimbursement (Authorization)
process needs to be clarified in two areas. Please remind staff of
Form IM-77 Interim Assistance Reimbursement
(Authorization) must be sent to the local Social Security office within
10 days of receipt. Send the original signed copy to the local Social
Security whenever the disability is expected to last six months or longer
or when the individual applies for SSI. Send the second copy (canary)
to the Division of Budget and Finance whenever the agreement has been sent
to SSA and the GR case is approved/ active. File the third copy in
the case record. Give the last copy (goldenrod) to the client at
the time the form is signed.
This is not a change to current procedure.
Continue to use the IM-77 and instructions as written in the Forms Manual.
If the General Relief application is rejected
after the agreement has been sent to the local Social Security office,
check the block at the bottom of the IM-77 form labeled Application
for State Assistance Rejected. Sign and date the file copy and mail
immediately to the local SSA office for disposition.
Review this memorandum with all appropriate
