PM 02-06-00: Eligibility Interview Process

WAG 02-06-00.

To determine if someone qualifies for benefits, the Family Community Resource Center collects information. If the applicant received benefits before, some of the information can be found in case records. Other information may be available through a search of computer files, from the applicant, or from third parties.

An interview is not required to determine eligibility for medical benefits. Use information from the application to determine eligibility. Never require a person applying only for medical benefits to come to the Family Community Resource Center for an eligibility interview.
