·         Concurrent Benefits Dual TANF benefits are for families whose child or children have been temporarily placed with another relative caregiver or other adult caregiver. This program requires that the custodial parent/caregiver is working with the Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS) on a Family Reconciliation Plan. 

 

·         These children are identified as having a living arrangement code of FC – Foster Care Non-Title IV-E or FE - Foster Care Title IV-E on their DEM1 screen. 

 

·         The Custodial Parent/Caregiver can continue to receive a TANF grant for up to 180 days while they work with DCFS on their Family Reconciliation Plan.  During this time the Temporary Caregiver can also receive a TANF grant for the child or children.  

           

NOTE:

Basic Food rules remain unchanged.  See EAZ Manual – Program Summary Washington Basic Food Program. 

 

Who is eligible for Concurrent Benefits Dual TANF?

 

·         A child who has been temporarily removed from the home of their custodial parent/caregiver, placed with an unlicensed relative caregiver or adult acting in loco parentis, while the family works with DCFS to resolve the family reconciliation issues.

 

·         There must be a clear expectation that the AU member will return to the family home within 180 days. Verification must come from Children's Administration (CA).  See EAZ Manual – WAC 388-454-0015 Temporary Absence from the home.

 

How long is the Concurrent Benefits Dual TANF certification period?

 

·         The system defaults to a 12 month certification period.

 

·         The system will use the Temporary Placement End date on the DEM1 screen to track the temporary placement of the child receiving Dual TANF Benefits.

 

·         The 180 day period begins on the date the child actually left the home.

 

·         The worker of record for the custodial parent/caregiver’s TANF/SFA AU where the child’s financial responsibility code is a RE – Recipient will receive Alert 108 – TEMP PLACEMENT OPEN FOR 180 DAYS – REVIEW HH STATUS. This alert displays 60 days prior to the temporary placement end date and again in the month in which the temporary placement is scheduled to end.

 

What medical benefits are Concurrent Benefits Dual TANF children eligible for?

 

·         Prior to benefit month 10/2013, active TANF (AF) issued cash and medical (F01- Temporary Assistance for Needy Familes Medical Program) for children with a financial responsibility code RE – Recipient.

 

·         Effective with benefit month 10/2013, if a child was on an active TANF (AF) cash case, a new F06 medical AU was created for medical coverage.

 

·         As a result of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), applications received on or after 10/01/2013, clients would need to apply for medical through the Washington Healthplanfinder.

1.    On the STAT screen, at the client level change the reason code from 201 – Living Arrangement – Cash/Medical Assistance to Reason Code 570 – Child’s Temporary Placement has ended.  This will close the child off of the custodial parent/caregiver’s TANF AU and reduce the grant or close the AU if there are no other eligible children in the home.

 

·         Take the following steps on the Temporary Caregiver’s case:

 

2.    On the child’s DEM1 screen take the following steps:

 

o    Change the child’s living arrangement code from [FC] or [FE] to [AH] – At Home.

 

o    Remove the [placement end date] from the Placemnt End Date field.

 

o    Update the child(ren’s) NCPs For Child to now include the custodial parent/caregiver that is non compliant with DCFS.

 

3.    On the NCPS screen, remove the TP – Temporary Placement code from the F01 AU. This generates a child support referral to DCS.
