SNAP customers who are required to meet the Work Provisions may still claim Good Cause and should not be sanctioned in instances where the employer may have closed their business or reduced the work hours of employees in order to comply with certain health and safety guidelines enforced in Illinois due to COVID-19.
CN 20.21, SNAP Work Requirement Time Limited Benefits Ends in Cook County and DuPage County, will only be mailed to SNAP households with a member who would be required to meet the work requirement, if not for COVID-19 restrictions. These households have been centrally changed from Change Reporting status to Mid-Point Reporting status. Redetermination Fact Sheet (Form 4769) is centrally generated with the conversion to inform the household of their new reporting requirements.
