TANF clients may be eligible for additional payment(s). These additional payments are called special payments.
The following items are special payments:
- Correction of an underpayment of cash benefits.
- Change in mailing date - When a change in mailing date of the regular roll benefits creates a period of unmet need, a special payment is issued.
A written request is not needed to issue payments to correct underpayments or for unmet needs from a change in mailing date.
