Before approving, complete an ANQR inquiry for each person listed on the application. If there is a matching record, complete an ACID inquiry for each matched case number. If anyone is included or had been included in a Cash, MANG, or SNAP Only case in the past 2 years, get the RIN from the ACID inquiry and enter it in Item 60.
(EW) To approve a pending application in IPACS, complete the Form 552 used to register the application or complete a blank Form 552:
Initial Prorated Entitlement (IPE)
The system centrally computes the IPE when the Family Community Resource Center does not authorize an exception to central prorate (code 100 entered in Item 80) and a 6-digit approval date is used.
The intake worker figures the IPE amount as an exception to central prorate when:
- a person(s) included in the IPE determination is not included in the first regular roll month, or a person(s) included in the first regular roll month is not included in the IPE determination; or
- income and/or needs included in the IPE are not included in the regular monthly benefit; or
- income and/or needs not included in the IPE period are included in the regular monthly benefit; or
- the IPE period is for more than 60 days.
When completing Form 552 for the regular roll approval, enter Item 80 code 100 and the prorated amount. The system issues an IPE for the amount entered in code 100.
NOTE: Always round down code 100. If code 100 is not rounded down, the system automatically rounds it down.
For examples showing the steps to be used when processing an IPE as part of the regular roll approval, see WAG 17-02-01-c.
