This code identifies cases which contain component SNAP members and in which a discrepancy in the SNAP case exists.

Casework Action

  1. Identify the discrepancy in the case by the error message on the PAL.
  2. Review and correct the coding on Form 552 that caused the discrepancy. This includes, but is not limited to, the following factors:
    • unit composition;
    • the correct amount of income budgeted in the SNAP calculation;
    • the appropriate cross-reference case number in Item 60 for each member of the SNAP unit;
    • the number of people on the SNAP payee case for the component case matches the number on the Form 552 for the component case;
    • correct coding for SNAP in Items 15, 20, 22, 23, 60, 80, and 90.

      Contact other casework staff or the customer to obtain needed information, if necessary. 

  3. Determine if a correction to Form 552 for the component case is required. If so, make the correction. If the component case is in a different caseload, initiate a referral to the appropriate supervisor for the change required.
  4. Determine the effect of any changes made on SNAP eligibility. Determine if an underpayment or overpayment occurred and take appropriate case action. Record the action taken on Form 514.
  5. When the discrepancy that caused the code to appear is corrected, the case no longer appears as Code F.
