When an IM retroactive check includes a payment for a prior month and a current month, only budget the portion for the current month.
EXAMPLE: A Temporary Assistance and Food Stamp application from April 25th is approved on June 5th. The Temporary Assistance retroactive check includes the May and June grants. Exclude the May grant as it is for a prior month. Include the June grant in the Food Stamp budget because it is anticipated to be received in the Food Stamp budget month.
When a Notice of Adverse Action is required for the Food Stamp change, the Notice of Adverse Action must expire by the day prior to the system deadline for the Temporary Assistance change to be budgeted.
If a change is reported resulting in Temporary Assistance ineligibility, base the FS issuance on the actual Temporary Assistance received in the month following the change.
EXAMPLE: If the change that occurred in April was not reported early enough in April to stop the May Temporary Assistance grant, the determination of the May FS issuance will include the May Temporary Assistance grant. When at a later date the Temporary Assistance overpayment is recouped, the FS budget will reflect only the Temporary Assistance actually received (i.e. less the Temporary Assistance being recouped).
