Cash or Medical Application
Do not automatically reopen a denied case based on information received after the due date to provide verification. File the information in the denied case record. If the person applies again, use the information to determine eligibility.
If the denied applicant appeals the denial decision, reopen the denied application and determine eligibility if the denied applicant:
- filed a timely appeal of the denial (see PM 01-07-03); or
- filed an appeal within 60 days of the date of the denial notice.
If a SNAP application was denied because verification was requested and not provided, reopen the case without requiring a new application if the requested verification is provided by the 60th day after the application was filed.
