When a child is born to an adult-only cash case, add the child for cash and medical right away beginning with the date of birth. Request needed verifications. If the mother provides the verifications, complete TANF Eligibility Information (Form
4002). In addition, require the client to provide proof of application for an SSN for the child.
NOTE: See PM 18-03-00 for the addition of the child to the case when a child is born to a TANF Cash client who receives TANF for other dependent
children. Ensure that coding for the mother and child is correct.
If the mother does not provide what is needed, SWAP to Medical. Enter code 3 in Item 78 for the child (see WAG 18-03-01-c).
