PM 19-07-01: What is a Mid-Point Reporting (MPR) Unit?

WAG 19-07-01

What is a Mid-Point Reporting Unit?

A Mid-Point Reporting (MPR) unit is a regular roll TANF case with earnings and any case with SNAP benefits except: 

  • SNAP units where all the adults are qualifying members and the case has no earned income; and
  •  SNAP units residing in areas of the State where the SNAP Work Requirement policy is waived; and
  • TANF cases with SNAP and the case has no earned income.

Mid-Point Reporting Status

  • A case is in Mid-Point Reporting status from the date an application is approved in IES.
  • An active case is converted to Mid-Point Reporting status when earned income is budgeted on the regular roll.

Case No longer Meets Mid-Point Reporting Status

  • A Cash case with SNAP benefits is in Mid-Point Reporting status until the first REDE where no earned income is budgeted; see PM 19-07-03 and WAG 19-07-03.
  • A SNAP only case stays in Mid-Point Reporting status until a unit member has to meet the SNAP Work Requirement when the county of residence is no longer waived.

revised manual textNote: SNAP households with members subject to the SNAP Work Requirement Time-Limited Benefits policy whose place of residence is in a waived area. Effective 07/01/2022, Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) waiver approval allows the entire State to continue to be exempt from the SNAP Work Requirement Time-Limited Benefits policy through 06/30/2023 based on Illinois' high unemployment rate. The SNAP Work Requirement Time-Limited Benefits policy is NOT in effect for any county in the State. For more information about the State's operation under COVID-19 see WAG 25-06-07-p.
