01 FSED - Purpose
FSED summarizes the NA eligibility criteria and how NA is determined for the benefit month.
 
Use FSED in the following situations:
 
To key an Untimely Reason code when the determination is completed untimely.
To change the status of the NA case when a budgetary unit is ineligible.
To deny NA for reasons other than income, such as NA voluntary withdrawal.
 
WARNING
Before authorizing NA benefits when CA was stopped on AFED for a combination CA and NA case, access UNIN and remove the CA income.
 
Key Y in the AUTHORIZE field to authorize the NA denial or closure as a result of ineligibility. This prevents accidental denials or closures.
 
AZTECS displays a message at the bottom of FSED to indicate the status of the case:
 
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. For the eligibility factors displayed on FSED, see Eligibility Factors Tables.
