.07 Lifetime Benefit Limit (LIBL) – Hopi Tribal TANF
 
 
(01/01/19 – 12/31/19)
A Hopi Family Assistance Program (HFAP) budgetary unit (BU) is eligible to receive TANF for a maximum of 60 months.
 
Any countable months the HFAP BU accumulate while living outside the HFAP service delivery area (SDA) also count toward the 60 month LIBL.
 
AZTECS sends the LIBL Tribal TANF 60-Month Limit (X075) notice to the BU when the following are met:
 
The BU has received 59 countable months of TANF
The case is in open status
The case is in the current system month
 
The X075 informs the PI of the following:
 
The participant has reached the 60th month of their LIBL
The TANF benefits will stop
The participant’s appeal hearing rights
 
EXCEPTION
When the case is not in the current system month, AZTECS does not send the X075 notice. Ensure the case is in the current system month and send the LIBL Tribal TANF 60-Month Limit (A400) notice when both of the following occur:
The TIME LTD MONTHS USED field on CODC displays 59 months or more
AZTECS did not send the X075 notice
 
When a BU claims a hardship during their 60 month Lifetime Benefit Limit (LIBL), HFAP completes the following:
 
Determines hardship exemption eligibility for the HFAP BU
Notifies the BU when they are eligible for a hardship exemption
Notifies FAA of the BU eligibility for the hardship exemption by completing and faxing the Tribal - Turn Around Document (TAD) (FAA 1125A)
 
When notified of an HFAP LIBL hardship exemption, FAA completes the following:
 
Contacts the FAA Systems Helpdesk to have the LIBL counter corrected
Checks to make sure that all AZTECS screens are correctly keyed to ensure eligibility is correctly determined (See HFAP Special Keying Requirements)
Document the case file(g) with the exempt month and reason for the exemption
