(FCRC) Make all requests for verification/information for clients who apply for AABD, SNAP, text deletedor TANF on Form 267 or Form 267D. For Family Assist, Moms and Babies, and All Kids/FamilyCare Assist, make all requests on Form 267E or Form 267F. For Medical Benefits, requests for Forms A-H (attachments to HFS 2378H), when they pertain to a mailed in application, should be sent on Form 267 accompanied by the needed form.

Specify the last day on which the verifications are due on the Form 267. The last day must always be a workday.

Complete Form 267 in duplicate. Give the original to the applicant and place the copy in the case record.

At the eligibility interview, if verifications are missing, give the client a 2nd Form 267, indicating all the items which are still needed. Allow the applicant an additional 10 calendar days to provide the requested verification.

When there is no eligibility interview because the person is applying only for medical and the FCRC is unable to process the application without contacting the client, send the applicant Form 267. Ask the applicant to contact the FCRC within 10 calendar days. If the client does not contact the FCRC within 10 days, deny the application with TAR 03. If the client contacts the FCRC and more verifications are required, send a 2nd Form 267. Allow an additional 10 calendar days to provide the requested verifications.

Use Form 267D to tell the person applying for AABD(D) Medical for a child, that information is requested when the absent parent is not a legal parent.

Do not deny the application for a child when a person does not give the information requested on Form 267D.

Acceptable verifications include copies of documents and faxed documents unless there is evidence the copy or original has been changed. If there is evidence, request other verification.

Give more time to get needed verification based on who has the verification needed.
