G Changes in Nutrition Assistance Categorical Eligibility
 
(07/01/09 – 09/30/09)
A change in circumstances for the NA budgetary unit may result in a loss of, or change in, categorical eligibility.
 
Loss of categorical eligibility includes, but is not limited to, any of the following:
 
A participant in an NA Basic categorically eligible budgetary unit stops receiving CA, BIA GA, or SSI. When this occurs, and the budgetary unit does not include a participant who meets the NA definition of elderly or disabled, AZTECS determines Expanded categorical eligibility.
The CA or BIA GA benefits stop in a Basic categorically eligible budgetary unit. When this occurs, and the budgetary unit does not include a participant who meets the NA definition of elderly or disabled, AZTECS determines Expanded categorical eligibility.
A participant in an NA categorically eligible budgetary unit becomes disqualified, and is keyed DE or DF in the FS PT field on SEPA. (See NA Participants Keyed as DE and NA Participants Keyed as DF)
The Basic or Expanded categorically eligible budgetary unit fails or refuses to provide necessary information to complete an NA determination. This includes SSN requirements.
The Expanded categorically eligible budgetary unit’s gross income exceeds 185% of the current federal poverty level, resulting in NA case closure.
