IES Phase 2 Process
Upon implementation of the Integrated Eligibility System (IES) phase 2, the process for completing a redetermination is changed. The REDE process is described in PM 19-02-04.
Complete Notice of Case Transfer (Form 85) if during the eligibility review the client reports a change in address which results in a transfer between local offices.
Regularly screen TANF cases to assure work and training registration of all nonexempt clients. When a client's status changes, immediately report this change (see PM 03-13-00).
Verify financial management if a client's monthly paid expenses exceed their monthly income. If the explanation indicates verification is needed, request it from the client. Cancel assistance if the client fails to verify financial management.
On a monthly basis, the system sends a Priority Action List (PAL) of cases identified as showing factors that suggest a high probability of ineligibility or overpayment. These include:
Do a complete REDE or a follow-up review as needed. See WAG 19-06-00 for an explanation of the PAL.
NOTE: For each TANF/SNAP case, when you complete a REDE or review case eligibility, review the SNAP unit composition. Make sure that a child who is out of the home, but is part of the TANF benefit unit, is included in the SNAP unit.
Conduct a REDE of eligibility every 6 or 12 months as required.
