When code M appears on the PAL, do the following:

  • Contact the client and determine the client's present living arrangements.
  • Revise the coding in Item 20 if the client is now:
    • living with a parent, adult relative, or legal guardian, or in a maternity home or other adult-supervised arrangement, or
    • meets one of the exemptions to the minor parent live at home policy (e.g., the minor has married).

Revising the coding in Item 20 will clear the M code from the PAL.

  • SWAP the case to Medical using TA 81/82 and TAR 18 for the first regular roll month following the 6-month period of TANF eligibility if the client is still not:
    • living with a parent, adult relative, or legal guardian, or in a maternity home or other adult-supervised arrangement, and
    • does not meet one of the exemptions to the minor parent live at home policy (e.g., the minor has married).

The SWAP action will clear the M code from the PAL.
