The reason the benefit is being withheld.
The phone number to call in order to obtain additional information.
A statement that benefits are withheld until the noncompliant participant completes the Jobs Program required activities.
Notice of the participant’s Appeal Rights. (See TPEP Appeal)
Notification that TPEP Cash Assistance will be closed without further notice when a total of three TPEP benefits are withheld in any six-month period.
NOTE When the third benefit is withheld due to failure to comply with a Jobs Program requirement, Jobs Program staff closes the case for the first month possible.
The Jobs Program staff releases the TPEP benefit when the participant completes all Jobs Program required activities for a full two-week period. Jobs staff then notifies the participant the benefit is available.
