FAA1.B Time Frames : 04 Time Frames for New Applications - Overview : D NA Expedite Applications With Postponed Verification
D NA Expedite Applications With Postponed Verification
(01/01/19 – 12/31/19)
When necessary, postpone any required verification except the identity of the PI to ensure NA Expedite time frames are met. (See Verification of Identity.)
When identity is not verified, process the NA application using NA new application time frames. Remove the Y in the EXPEDITED FS field on the APMA screen in AZTECS.
NOTE When documents for identity verification are not available, use collateral contact when possible.
In order to comply with NA Expedite time frames, send the Expedited NA – Postponed Verification (F121) notice when authorizing expedited benefits. All Postponed verification must be provided within 30 calendar days of the date of application. The following applies to postponed verification:
When an expense cannot be verified, remove the unverified expense from the AZTECS EXNS screen for the first month possible.
Do not authorize ongoing benefits before the PI provides or applies for a Social Security Number (SSN) for each participant in the case.
Stop NA benefits when the participant fails to provide required, postponed verification. There is no requirement to allow for NOAA.
NOTE Do not send an NA closure notice. The F121 states benefits are stopped when required, postponed verification is not provided.
When the participant applies after the 15th day of the month, complete the following:
Issue NA benefits for the second month as an aggregate allotment.
NOTE Issue the aggregate allotment even when verification, including Social Security Enumeration, is postponed.
Copy details into the third month.
Do not authorize benefits for the third month until the requested verification is provided.
Do not send an additional notice after the F121 notice when any of the following occur:
The 30-day deadline is expired and required verification is not provided.
No closure notice is required.
The verification is returned, and the NA benefit amount must be changed as a result of the verification received.
When the NA benefits are reduced due to the approval of CA benefits.
When CA eligibility is determined using the same application, a CA determination notice must be sent to the applicant.
