LIBL/STBL Hardship Extension Eligibility – Disability Verification

When a hardship extension request is based on a disability, verification of the disability must be provided.
Verification of a disability includes, but is not limited to, any of the following:
Signed statement from a treatment provider(g)
Disability verification from the Veteran’s Administration (VA)
Vocational Rehabilitation documents, examinations or evaluations signed by a treatment provider
Deferral from Jobs Program based on disability
NOTE For verification of deferral from the Jobs Program for disability, contact the Jobs Program Contractor that serves the participant’s residential location via email. Verify the reason the participant is deferred from Jobs participation and the number of the deferral months for this reason. (For Jobs Program Contractors, see Maximus in Maricopa County and Equus outside Maricopa County.)
The verification of disability must include all of the following information:
That the participant’s physical or mental condition prevents the participant from working or engaging in work activities
The duration of the disability

Document the verification used.
NOTE Verification of disability cannot be more than 12 months old. Request current verification when the verification originated more than 12 months before the hardship extension request.
