The system sends the client TANF Eligibility Information (Form 4002C). The forms are mailed in the 6th month following the month of the last opening date of the case and every 6 months thereafter on non-RPY cases. For example, if the last opening date is 12/01, a REDE form is sent every June and December. For RPY cases, if the last opening date is 12/01, a REDE form is sent every June.
If Item 21 of Form 552 is coded 02 or 04, the client is sent the Spanish version.
If Item 21 of Form 552 is coded other than 02 or 04, the client is sent the English version.
If the client does not return Form 4002C by the due date, send another Form 4002 to the client with a due date. If the client fails to return the REDE form and the case has been active for at least 12 months and a REDE has not been completed within the last 12 months, cancel the case using TAR 87. Otherwise, put the case in zero grant status using TA 31/TAR 35 and zero grant reason 2.
If the case has food stamps, determine eligibility for food stamps (see PM 18-04-11 and WAG 18-04-11). SNAP will continue to be authorized on the zero grant case. Do not increase SNAP benefits as a result of the decrease in the TANF benefits, because the cash benefits are being discontinued due to failure to comply with a cash program requirement.
The system will centrally budget the amount of the cash benefit reduction as code 512 to make sure that the SNAP benefits do not increase due to the reduction in the cash benefits. If TANF benefits are budgeted as code 658, these codes will be centrally removed when code 512 is added.
