SNAP Cash or AABD Medical Unit
When a SNAP cash or AABD medical unit reports that earnings have stopped, respond to the reported change. See PM 18-04-08 /WAG 18-04-08 for SNAP and PM 10-02-04-c /WAG 10-02-04-c for TANF. Leave the case in EZ REDE status until the next REDE.
If the client is not working at REDE, remove the case from EZ REDE status and assign an approval period based on the unit's situation (see PM 17-05-02).
Category 08 or Category 94/96 SNAP Case
When a Category 08 or Category 94/96 SNAP case becomes exempt, respond to the reported change. See PM 18-04-08 /WAG 18-04-08. Remove the case from EZ REDE status at the next REDE, if still exempt.
To remove a case from EZ REDE status, the local office:
- Changes Item 36 code R to code RX; and
- Sends the unit Form 1978 and a return envelope. Form 3324 is centrally sent if the case remains on the regular roll. If the SNAP benefits were centrally canceled, the local office must send Form 3324.
Note: For cases in non-exempt Work Requirement areas, if the worker forgets to exclude the case, the system centrally adds an X to Item 36 code R. The central entry of RX excludes the case from EZ REDE.
