G ABAWD - Regaining Eligibility
 
REVISION 43
(08/01/16 - 09/30/16)
When a participant loses NA eligibility because of reaching the 3‑month limit, the participant can become eligible again when one of the following occurs:
 
Works at least 80 hours in any 30‑day period
Participates in a work program for at least 80 hours in a 30-day period
Has a combination of work and work program participation for the 80 hours in a 30‑day period
Fits any category of exemption
Enters a new 36‑month period
Works or participates in an employment and training program
 
NOTE Include the ABAWD participant for NA benefits in the month they meet one of the listed requirements.
 
The participant can also regain eligibility as many times as they meet an exemption category.
 
When a participant regains eligibility through work or an employment and training program and then becomes ineligible again, they can only get the one additional 3-month period of eligibility within the 36‑month period. (See ABAWD Extension Period)
