SUBJECT:
Automated Referral And Response Form         

DISCUSSION:

Effective Tuesday, September 8, 2009, the Missouri Employment and Training (METP) Referral and Response form has been added to FAMIS. The FA-333 Referral and Response form is used to re-refer Food Stamp EU members to the Division of Workforce Development (DWD) to cure or end a Food Stamp sanction and replaces the IM-311 Referral and Response form.

Generating the Form

The FA-333 Referral and Response form can only be generated for individuals in application or active status. The procedure for generating an FA-333 Referral and Response form differs for individuals who are:

The procedure for each code is outlined below

The message “Invalid EU member status” displays on the Employment Assessment (FMMS or EMPLOY) and the Verification Forms List (FM4B or VERFORM) screens when attempting to create an FA-333 Referral and Response form for an EU member who is not in application or active status.

Individual Coded 22 MNC

To generate the form from the Employment Assessment (FMMS or employ) screen in FAMIS:

If the person whose code is changed is not the sanctioned individual, the form is generated and the message “Explore sanction and update if needed” displays.

The FA-333 Referral and Response form is then ready to edit.  Refer to the Editing FA-333 section below.

Individual Coded 25 MNC

When an EU member who is already coded 25 MNC indicates s/he wishes to comply with DWD to end their MTP sanction, enter a comment regarding the re-referral on the Employment Assessment (FMMS or EMPLOY) screen. 

To generate the form from the Verification Forms List (FM4B or VERFORM) screen in FAMIS:  

Editing FA-333

The FA-333 Referral and Response form must be edited from the Document Queue (FMVM or DOCQUE) screen.  When going to Document Queue from the Employment Assessment (FMMS or EMPLOY) screen, enter the head of the EU’s DCN in the DCN field and press enter.  The FA-333 displays in the lower section of the screen.

The Individual, address, city, state, zip, DCN, Social Security number and date of birth fields are automatically populated in the Individual Referred section. The eligibility specialist, telephone number, referring address, city, state, and zip code fields are also automatically populated in the Comments Section.

The referral date is populated with the date the FA-333 is generated. The FA-333 Referral and Response form should be printed the same day it is created. If the FA-333 is not printed on the same day it is created, delete the form and generate a new form on the Verification Forms List (FM4B or VERFORM) screen so the correct referral date is printed on the form.

Once the form is printed, check the appropriate box in the "Referred For" section. Make a copy of the completed form for the case record. Give the completed form to the participant to take with them to DWD.

NECESSARY ACTION:
