01 AFED - Purpose
AFED summarizes the CA eligibility criteria and how CA is determined for the benefit month.
 
Use AFED for the following:
 
To key an untimely reason code when the determination is completed untimely.
To change the status of the CA case when a budgetary unit is ineligible.
To deny CA for reasons other than income, such as CA voluntary withdrawal.
 
WARNING
When closing CA on AFED for a combination CA and NA case, access UNIN and remove the CA income before authorizing the NA benefits.
 
Key Y in the AUTHORIZE field to authorize the CA denial or closure as a result of ineligibility. This prevents accidental denials or closures.
 
AZTECS displays a message at the bottom of AFED to indicate one of the following:
 
PASS
FAIL
ELIGIBILITY UNKNOWN - ALL ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS NOT COMPLETED
 
When some eligibility factors are not yet determined, pass through the corresponding screens to resolve the undetermined criteria.
