Additional Information

What is verification?

Verification is proof of claimed circumstances or information. The Child Care Subsidy Program (CCSP) has rules about what does and doesn’t need to be verified. The verification must:
  • Clearly relate to what needs to be verified;
  • Be from a reliable source; and
  • Be accurate, complete, and consistent.

Clients can self-report some information without providing third-party verification.

When do clients need to provide verification?

Clients must provide verification when:

  • They report a required change as outlined in the client's Rights and Responsibilities;
  • The Department finds out that the circumstances have changed, it is a change the client is required to report, and the Department has requested additional verification; or
  • The information the Department has is questionable, confusing, or outdated and the Department has requested verification.

Applications will be processed without pending for additional information whenever possible.
