|TEMPORARY ASSISTANCE INCOME IN FAMIS|
| With the implementation of Temporary Assistance in FAMIS, changes are made to:
These changes are effective November 8, 2004, with the conversion of the Temporary Assistance case into FAMIS or Temporary Assistance application taken in FAMIS. Until the Temporary Assistance case is converted, follow current procedure for entering Temporary Assistance income (C1-C6 source codes) in the Income (FMX0) screen.
Entering Temporary Assistance Income
Once a Temporary Assistance case is active in FAMIS, the Temporary Assistance grant is automatically included by FAMIS on all FAMIS budgets, but is no longer seen on the Income (FMX0) screen. The worker does not make an entry regarding Temporary Assistance income on the Income (FMX0) screen when the EU is receiving Temporary Assistance benefits through FAMIS.
Conversion to FAMIS
During the process of converting the Temporary Assistance case to FAMIS, end date the existing C1 - C6 income source on the Income (FMX0) screen in the controlled flow. Use the last day of the previous month as the End Date, and the Reason End code CV. FAMIS automatically budgets the Temporary Assistance grant beginning with the month of conversion.
Displaying Temporary Assistance Income
Once a Temporary Assistance case is active in FAMIS:
Income Source Code Description Change
The description for income source code RP is changed to REDUCTION-REFUSAL TO COMPLY WITH PROGRAM REQ. Staff must continue to enter this income source on the Income (FMX0) screen when a Temporary Assistance case is sanctioned and the higher grant amount is to be budgeted for food stamps, even when the Temporary Assistance case is active in FAMIS. This income is excluded for the Child Care EU.
EXAMPLE: Ms. A is sanctioned on Temporary Assistance for refusing to complete work requirements for Temporary Assistance case management. Her Temporary Assistance grant is reduced from $234 to $175. FAMIS enters $175 on the food stamp and child care budgets. The worker must enter income source RP on the Income (FMX0) screen in the amount of $59. The Food Stamp Budget Summary (FM4A) screen shows UI TA Benefit amount of $175, the Unearned Income amount of $59, and Gross Unearned amount of $234. The Child Care Budget Summary (FM3T) screen shows UI TA Benefit amount of $175, the Unearned Income amount of $0, and the Gross Unearned amount of $175.
