| CATEGORICAL ELIGIBILITY WITH FAMIS
TEMPORARY ASSISTANCE IMPLEMENTATION
| Memorandum IM-#30, dated March 31, 2004, advises staff that a reminder is set to check the categorical eligibility (CE) code when a Child Care determination is run and the CE code may/may not match.
Effective with the implementation of Temporary Assistance into FAMIS, the same review process will occur when a Temporary Assistance determination is run. This process will not occur until the Temporary Assistance case is completely converted to FAMIS.
A reminder “CHECK CE CODE FOR FOOD STAMP ELIGIBILITY” is generated when any of the following occur.
If all members of the EU are coded CE for any reason, the reminder will not be generated. If one or more members are not coded CE, the reminder is generated. To view reminders in FAMIS, type “ALREMIND” or “FM7M” on the command line and press enter. The Alert/Reminder (FM7M) screen displays. To filter for reminders type “R” in the Alert/Reminder (A/R) field and press enter. The reminders are displayed.
When this reminder is received, review the CE codes on the Categorically Eligible (FMMK) screen and update if necessary. To view CE codes, select the reminder and press F=15 REVIEW. The Categorically Eligible screen displays CE codes for all members of the EU.
If a change is made in the CE codes 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, act on the change to the food stamp EU, including the change in categorical eligibility, if
