A person who claims to be disabled can be found "not employable" under Category P3 GA-TA if the person:
- is found to be disabled by the Client Assessment Unit (CAU), and
- signs an authorization for repayment of assistance, and
- has an application for SSI pending, or
- has appealed a finding of "not disabled" at the reconsideration level or the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) level.
A Category P3 TA client receives the same medical coverage as a Category 93 AABD client. The authorization of Category
P3 assistance allows a central monitoring of the status of the client's SSI application.
A person who has been found disabled by CAU and who does not appeal the SSI denial at the initial determination or at the reconsideration level is not eligible for Category P3 TA or for Category 07 TA under any of the other "not employable" criteria.
When an active Category 07 client claims disability, register a Category 03 application and instruct the client to
apply for SSI if they do not have an application pending or under appeal at the ALJ level or below.
A person applying for Category P3-TA is eligible for temporary medical benefits if the Department is
responsible for disposition delay. See PM/WAG 17-03-03.
NOTE: When a noncitizen, age 65 or older, who was legally residing in the U.S. on 08/22/96, is denied SSI due to a finding of "not disabled," determine eligibility for Category 01 assistance. If all other AABD cash eligibility
requirements are met, the noncitizen is eligible for Category 01 assistance whether or not they appeal the SSI denial.
