Participants for whom U.S. citizenship status is declared and who meet the U.S. citizenship criteria are potentially eligible to receive CA and NA.
 
All U.S. citizens MUST provide documented proof of U.S. citizenship.
 
NOTE When the U.S. citizen participant is receiving SSI benefits the citizenship verification requirement is met for CA and NA.
 
Document CADO or the case file with information on the document used to verify U.S. citizenship for each participant.
 
When the CA, NA, or ST participant does not provide verification of their citizenship, key DI in the PT field on SEPA for the participant. Key HB in the INELIG RSN field on SEPA.
 
When all potentially eligible citizen participants fail to verify their citizenship, deny the CA or NA application. Key HB in the DENIAL CLOSURE REASON field on AFED and FSED and send the appropriate notice.
When a person is applying for MA, key IN in the PT field on SEPA.
 
When a person is not applying for MA, key OU in the PT field on SEPA.
