At the interview, request that the PI provide date of birth verification for each CA participant when a participant's age could affect eligibility.
 
The PI may not have the verification with them at the interview. When this occurs, have the PI sign an Authority to Release Information (FA‑059) form.
 
Send the appropriate forms to obtain the required information. (See Requesting Verification of Birth or Death)
 
When written verification has not been received by the time the case is ready to complete, call the appropriate contact for the information.
 
When verification is not received by the processing deadline, deny, close, or do not allow the deduction, depending on the reason verification is needed.
 
When it is necessary to deny or stop benefits, key DI or OU in the PT field on SEPA next to the participant for whom verification is needed. (See CA Nonparticipants and CA Participants Keyed as DI)
 
WARNING
When keying DI requires a Denial or Closure Reason Code, DO NOT use the G (age) Code. in the RSN field on SEPA. Key the reason the verification of date of birth was needed (e.g., dependent child, school attendance, etc.).
