NA Transitional Benefit Assistance (TBA) - Effecting Changes
Information on this page refers to the Nutrition Assistance program
The NA Transitional Benefit Assistance (TBA) budgetary unit is not required to report changes for NA.
Policy
The TBA budgetary unit is not required to report changes for NA. The only changes processed during the TBA approval period are the following:
FAA receives notification that a participant has left the budgetary unit.
The Federal Government makes changes to applicable Nutrition Assistance rules.
The participant withdraws from TBA.
FAA is notified by the Office of Accounts Receivable and Collections (OARC) that an individual has been convicted of an Intentional Program Violation (IPV). This would disqualify the household from TBA benefits.
The participant may withdraw from TBA at any time. To withdraw from TBA, the participant turns in a new application and a written statement requesting that TBA benefits be stopped.
The budgetary unit may be eligible for less NA benefits under the regular NA policy than they are receiving under TBA. When this occurs, the budgetary unit is not eligible to return to TBA.
Verification
The participant has the primary responsibility for providing verification. (See Participant Responsibilities – Providing Verification for additional policy.)
