PM 08-04-05: Noncompliance Amount

WAG 08-04-05.

If a SNAP unit's TANF monthly benefit amount or SSI benefits are reduced because of a recoupment due to a noncompliance with program requirements, the recoupment amount is counted as available unearned income. The recoupment amount is called the noncompliance amount.

Noncompliance with program requirements occurs when a unit member is:

  • convicted in a criminal case of fraudulently obtaining an overpayment, or
  • judged in a civil case to have fraudulently obtained an overpayment.
