Use the TARS in this sub-topic for TANF and RRA Cash to:

  • deny an application (TA 05) or person in an application;
  • progress a denied application or person to another category (TA 62); or
  • record the reason that a Swap request to Cash was denied.

Deny a Case or Person or Case Progression

For denials (TA 05) and case progression (TA 62) processed through AIS or IPACS, the following TARs generate a central denial notice (Form 360C) with the related reason, unless Item 39 is coded to suppress the notice. If the central notice is suppressed, the Family Community Resource Center must complete and send the denial notice (Form 360I, Section *D**).

NOTE: If a TAR applies only to case denial, the Reason for Denial box shows TA 05 Only. If a TAR applies only to case progression, the Reason for Denial box shows TA 62 Only.

Some of the TARs are used to notify the unit of the reason why a person was excluded for benefits. If a TAR applies to person-level only, the TAR Box shows (Person Only). If the TAR applies to both person-level and case-level, the TAR Box shows (Person & Case).

Deny a Swap Request to Cash

These TARs are also used to record the denial of a Swap request to Cash. A central notice is not generated on Swap requests. For denied Swap requests, the denial TAR is entered in Item 80 with code 334 DENY (see WAG 18-02-00).
