WAC 388-406-0065

Effective October 1, 2013

WAC 388-406-0065 Can I still get benefits even after my application is denied?

  1. If we (the department) deny your application for benefits, we can redetermine your eligibility for benefits without a new application if:
    1. For cash, you give us the information we need within thirty days from the date we denied your application;
    2. You stop participating as required to reopen cash assistance under WAC 388-310-1600(12) due to one of the good reasons described in WAC 388-310-1600(3) or because you get an excused absence, as described in WAC 388-310-0500(5);
    3. For Basic Food, you give us the information we need within sixty days of the date you applied for benefits.
  2. If you are eligible for cash or Basic Food, we decide the date your benefits start according to WAC 388-406-0055. For all programs the eligibility date is based on the date of your original application that was denied.
