.05 NA Participants Keyed as DF
(01/01/20 - 12/31/20)
The following participants may not receive NA benefits due to a disqualification. Key DF in the PT field on SEPA in the following situations:
Participants who commit fraud or an intentional program violation (IPV).
NOTE When an IPV sanction is imposed by another state the same IPV sanction time frames apply in Arizona. See electronic Disqualified Recipient System (eDRS) for procedures to identify disqualified NA participants from other states.
Participants who are fleeing to avoid prosecution or custody, for a crime, or an attempt to commit a crime, that would be classified as a felony. The participant is ineligible for NA benefits while the participant continues to flee.
Participants, children or adults, who are violating a condition of probation or parole imposed by a federal or state law. The participant is ineligible for NA benefits while the participant continues to violate a condition of probation or parole.
Participants convicted of trading NA benefits for controlled substances or controlled substances for NA benefits.
Participants convicted of trafficking NA benefits.
Participants on the jail cross match report that confirm or fail to respond to the request for information notice.
Participants convicted of making fraudulent statements concerning their residence or identity, in order to receive multiple NA benefits.
Participants, children or adults, who are convicted of a felony offense that has actual possession, use, or distribution of a controlled substance as an element of the crime. The crime must have been committed and the participant convicted on or after August 23, 1996. (See Drug Conviction Disqualification)
NA participants who are disqualified remain disqualified when applying in a separate case. The following Participant Disqualification Alert Code types must be keyed in the third alert type field on PRAP next to the disqualified participant, regardless of the number of other person alerts:
FD – Felony Drug Conviction
FF – Fleeing Felon
NOTE Keying these alert types in the first or second alert type field on PRAP next to the disqualified elderly participant or person with a disability will incorrectly allow the household special considerations.
NOTE When any participant in the NA budgetary unit is keyed with the DF Participation Code, the budgetary unit is not NA categorically eligible (Basic or Expanded).
NA participants with a drug conviction may avoid a disqualification or have a prior drug disqualification removed when they meet all NA eligibility criteria and the NA Drug Disqualification Removal Requirements. Review SEPA for the DF participation code at application or reapplication.
