104: TANF CLOSED IN BATCH, REVIEW HH FOR CORRECT TFA ELIG


DESCRIPTION

 

This alert generates in the following situations:

 

·         When a Basic Food AU closes prior to the TANF AU which later closes in batch.

 

·         When a client was removed from the Basic Food AU with a paid-through date equal to the current benefit month, and the client would still be eligible to be included in the Transitional Food Assistance (TFA).

 

PROCEDURE

 

·         When a Basic Food AU closes prior to the TANF AU which closed in batch, take the following steps to determine TFA eligibility:

 

1.    Reinstate both the TANF and Basic Food AUs for the months that were closed by selecting Option M – Reinstatement on the AMEN screen.

 

2.    On the REIN screen enter [Y] in the REINS field next to each client to be reinstated. <TRANSMIT> and the AMEN redisplays.

 

3.    Repeat the above steps for each month to be reinstated.

 

4.    Select Option R – Interim / Hist Change. On the STAT screen for the TANF AU do not make any changes. On the STAT screen for the Basic Food, remove the closure reason codes.

 

5.    On the MISC screen for the TANF AU, enter [Y] in the Calc Elig Ind field and <TRANSMIT>.

 

6.    When the data is committed, the TANF AU will close back down and the Basic Food AU will go to TFA as long as all TFA criteria are met. If not, it will process as a Basic Food AU.

 

·         When a client was removed from the Basic Food AU with a paid-through date equal to the current benefit month, and the client is eligible to be included in the TFA AU, take the following steps:

 

1.    Close the TFA AU in all the active months.

 

2.    Reinstate the TFA AU in all the months that were closed by selecting Option M – Reinstatement on the AMEN screen.

 

3.    On the REIN screen enter [Y] in the REINS field next to each client to be reinstated. Make sure to include the missing client when selecting clients. <TRANSMIT> and the AMEN redisplays.

 

4.    Repeat the above steps for each month that is to be reinstated.

 

5.    Select Option R – Interim / Hist Change for the TFA AU.

 

6.    Commit the data. The missing client will now be included as part of the TFA household if eligible.

 

DISPOSITION

 

The system AUTO dispositions the alert in overnight batch when the TANF AU is reinstated and TFA eligibility is re-determined or when the missing client is included in the TFA AU.
