|FOOD STAMP CATEGORICAL ELIGIBILITY REMINDER|
Effective April 5, 2004,
FAMIS reviews the food stamp categorical eligibility information when a Child
Care determination is run. A reminder “CHECK CE CODE FOR FOOD STAMP
ELIGIBILITY” is generated when any of the following occur.
When this reminder is received, review the categorical eligibility information entered on the Categorically Eligible (FMMK) screen and update if necessary. To view categorical eligibility status, type “CATELIG” or “FMMK” on the command line and press enter. The categorical eligibility for all members of the EU is displayed.
If a change is made in the categorical eligibility information entered in the system, complete an eligibility determination by typing “EDRES” on the command line and pressing enter. Complete the authorization process. For simplified reporting EUs, if there is a change in Child Care expenses, act on the change to the food stamp EU, including the change in categorical eligibility.
Example: Mrs. D is no longer working and her Child Care case closes. The food stamp EU is no longer categorically eligible and a bank account of over $2000 is now considered a resource. Although the Child Care expense increases, an adverse action to close the EU for excess resources is created when the eligibility determination is completed. Complete the authorization to close the EU on excess resources.
