412: AUTO CHANGES MADE ON OPTIONAL AU - RECAL ELIG ON MISC


DESCRIPTION

 

This alert generates for optional TANF AUs when ACES automatically processes a change, such as the child turns age 19, or BENDEX shows a change of income. 

 

Optional AUs contain non-mandatory persons such as a needy caretaker relative.  For more information about household composition, see EAZ Manual WAC 388-408-0025 -  When can I choose who is in my TANF or SFA assistance unit?

 

PROCEDURE

o    On the MISC screen, enter [Y] in the Calc Elig Indicator field and <TRANSMIT>.

 

o    Call DONE and commit the data.
