When a SNAP, Cash or AABD case in Mid-Point Reporting reports that earnings have stopped, respond to the reported change.  Rerun eligibility.  IES will keep the case in Mid-Point Reporting status until the next REDE. See PM 18-04-08 , WAG 18-04-08 for SNAP and PM 10-02-04-c,  WAG 10-02-04-c for TANF.  If the client is not working at REDE, IES will approve the case in Change Reporting status.  Assign an approval period based on the unit's situation (see PM 17-05-02).

Legacy System Process

SNAP, Cash or AABD Medical Unit

When a SNAP, Cash or AABD medical unit reports that earnings have stopped, respond to the reported change.  See PM 18-04-08 /WAG 18-04-08 for SNAP and PM 10-02-04-c /WAG 10-02-04-c for TANF. Leave the case in revised manual textMid-Point Reporting status until the next REDE.

If the client is not working at REDE, remove the case from revised manual textMid-Point Reporting status and assign an approval period based on the unit's situation (see PM 17-05-02).

SNAP Only Case or FHP/SNAP Case

When a SNAP only or FHP/SNAP case becomes exempt, respond to the reported change.  See PM 18-04-08 /WAG 18-04-08Remove the case from revised manual textMid-Point Reporting status at the next REDE, if still exempt.

To remove a case from Mid-Point Reporting status, the local office:

  1. Changes Item 36 code R to code RX; and
  2. Sends the unit Form 1978 and a return envelope.  Form 3324 is centrally sent if the case remains on the regular roll.  If the SNAP benefits were centrally canceled, the local office must send Form 3324.

Note: For cases in non-exempt Work Requirement areas, if the worker forgets to exclude the case, the system centrally adds an X to Item 36 code R.  The central entry of RX excludes the case from revised manual textMid-Point Reporting.
