.01 Good Cause - Death
The UMP does not have a parent, a legally responsible adult nonparent relative, or a legal guardian due to death.
NOTE The UMP may need to be referred for other potential cash benefits. (See SSA/RSDI - Other)
Complete the AZTECS absent parent screens indicating the UMP's natural or adoptive parent is deceased.
Verify the death. When verification is not available the UMP must sign a statement attesting that a legally responsible adult relative or a legal guardian is deceased. When the statement of death is questionable refer the case to OSI to determine potential fraud.
