TANF

  1. If the nonfinancial reason is related to a REDE scheduled more frequently than once a year, zero grant the case (see WAG 19-02-01). If the nonfinancial reason does not apply to medical, SWAP the case to Family Assist. Do not delete the adults.

    Example: Ms. A's TANF case has been zero granted for 4 months due to a 3rd level sanction. The LMDD is 11/2002. SWAP the case to Family Assist. 

  2. If the nonfinancial reason also applies to medical and the LMDD is within 12 months, SWAP the case. Then delete each person age 19 and over. Each person under age 19 remains eligible due to continuous Medicaid eligibility.

    Example: Mr. B fails to file for UI benefits. The LMDD is 04/2002. SWAP the case to All Kids Assist for the children and delete Mr. and Mrs. B with TA 34/TAR 40. 

  3. If the nonfinancial reason also applies to medical and the LMDD is more than 12 months, cancel the case with the correct TAR.

    Example: Ms. C fails to file for UI benefits. The LMDD is 04/2001. Cancel the case with TA 22/TAR 69. 

Family Assist

  1. If everyone in the case is age 19 or over or the LMDD is more than 12 months, cancel the case with the correct TAR.
  2. If someone in the case is under age 19 and the LMDD is within 12 months, change code F in Item 25 to a dash and delete every person age 19 and over.

    Example: The D family has an active Family Assist case. Ms. D reports that her husband has moved home. Form 1721 is sent requesting verification of current income. Ms. D fails to respond. The current processing month is 07/03. If the LMDD is 06/2002 or earlier, cancel the case with TA 22/TAR 88. If the LMDD is 07/2002 or later, change code F in Item 25 on Form 552 to a dash. 

FamilyCare/All Kids Assist

  1. If everyone in the case is age 19 or over or the LMDD is more than 12 months, cancel the case with the correct TAR.
  2. If someone in the case is under age 19 and the LMDD is within 12 months, delete every person age 19 and over.

    Example: Ms. E fails to file for UI. LMDD is 06/03. The current processing month is 08/03. Delete Mr. and Ms. E from the case with TA 34/TAR 40. The children remain eligible through 06/30/04. 

Moms and Babies

If the pregnant woman no longer lives in Illinois, cancel the case with TA 22/TAR 78. Otherwise, make no changes until after the 60-day postpartum period (see WAG 06-09-06-c).
