IES Phase 2 Process

  • Form 1893, SNAP and TANF Redetermination Application and Medical Renewal, is the redetermination application used for both SNAP Change Reporting households and Mid-Point Reporting households.
  • IES systematically generates Form 1893 as the notice of expiration of benefits for SNAP 60 days prior to the end of the approval period.
  • If medical benefits are received on the case, IES determines if there is documentation from electronic sources to complete an automatic medical redetermination (see PM 19-02-04-c). Do not use the Auto REDE Process (A) for SNAP.  Only questions pertaining to the benefit program requiring a redetermination will appear on Form 1893 for the customer to complete.
  • Form 1893 is due to the Family Community Resource Center by the 1st day of the last month in the approval period if:
  • completed in Manage My Case (MMC); or
  • submitted to the Center Scan Unit CSU); or
  • mailed through the U.S. postal service.
  • A SNAP customer applying in person must file an application by the 15th day in the last month of the approval period for a timely application.

REDE Application Submitted in Manage My Case (MMC)

(IES) When a customer completes a REDE in Management My Case (MMC) before the approval period ends, creates a REDE task and routes to the appropriate Redetermination queue:

  •  Interview Required - Initiate REDE. All SNAP redeterminations require a face-to-face interview (see PM 02-06-01); or
  •   No Interview -Initiate REDE

(FCRC) When Form 1893, is returned to the office, reviews the notice to see if the customer is requesting a phone interview or an office interview. If the customer requests a phone interview, schedule a phone interview not an office interview. 

(IES) Generates Form 267T, Appointment Notice, when an appointment is scheduled at the FCRC and sends to the customer with the date and time of the interview. For phone interviews also include a contact name and telephone number for them to call. Indicate any additional information or documents that are needed on Form.

It is systematically generated in IES when an appointment is scheduled for an applicant or recipient in IES. There is a statement on IL444-0267T Appointment Notice that the customer has the option to come into the office or call the office prior to the scheduled appointment time and be interviewed on a walk-in basis.

Paper REDE Application (Form 1893) Returned - DataCap Scanned Documents

(FCRC) If a customer completes a paper Form 1893 and submits it to either the Central Scan Unit (CSU) or the FCRC, scan the REDE form into IES using Data Cap.

(IES) Creates a task in the appropriate Redetermination queue:

  •  Interview Required - Initiate REDE.  All SNAP redeterminations require a face-to-face interview (see PM 02-06-01-b); or
  •  No interview-Initiate REDE

REDE Form Not Returned or Returned Late

IES allows the approval period to close for SNAP at schedule cut-off, if a REDE application is not returned or processed before the approval period ends. Receipt of the SNAP REDE will not stop IES from ending SNAP, if the REDE application has been received but not processed by schedule cut-off. If the customer completes the REDE after the case is closed:

  1. (IES) Creates the task title Potential Reinstatement.
  2. (FCRC) Processes a REDE application, if it is returned during the fiscal month after the approval period. Benefits are prorated from the date the application is received. An interview is required.
  3. If the REDE application is received later than the fiscal month after the end of the current approval period, process as an initial application. The unit must have a face-face interview. For late TANF REDE cases see PM 19-04-02-b, WAG 19-04-02-b.

Legacy System Process

Scheduling the Interview

(FCRC) When Form 1893 is returned to the office, reviews the notice to see if the customer is requesting a phone interview or an office interview. If the customer requests a phone interview, schedule a phone interview not an office interview.
