A CA Renewal Procedures
 
(01/01/20 – 12/31/20)
Complete the following at each CA renewal:
 
Review and ensure a signed copy of the Personal Responsibility Agreement (PRA) is placed in the case file(g).
 
NOTE When the participant refuses to sign the PRA, see PRA Noncooperation.
 
Verify eligibility factors subject to change, and for which there is no current verification.
Review DISA and PRAP to determine the status of participants who may be sanctioned or disqualified from receiving benefits.
 
NOTE Add new participants or former participants who are eligible in the renewal month. Determine eligibility for the Two Parent Employment Program (TPEP) when adding participants with a child in common.
 
Obtain verification for any change reported and completed without verification. (See Decrease in Benefits)
Ensure current case status and ongoing CA benefit levels are correct. Determine whether any eligibility payment errors occurred since the last approval or renewal.
When an overpayment has occurred, establish the applicable CA overpayment months and complete the Potential Overpayment (OP) Referral (FAA-0526A) form.
When an underissuance has occurred, establish the applicable underpayment months and issue the Supplemental CA Payments on UNAU.
When a participant applies during a three-month Grant Diversion period, see Grant Diversion Eligibility Determination.
Review DCSS forms in the case file, and information on the Absent Parent Screens, with the PI to ensure information is accurate and up to date.
