Enter reason 99 in Item 80 code 165 when the client appeals the sanction action by the date of change on Notice of Change (Form 157NC). The system removes the code 512 and restores benefits for the same month. If necessary, issue lost benefits. The code 165 remains on the case during the appeal process.
If the sanction action is upheld or the appeal is dismissed, reenter the code 165 using TA 31/TAR 37, the current effective month for the DATE, and the original reason code and level. Withhold the central notice. The appeal decision is the only notice required.
If the sanction action is reversed, repeal the sanction (see WAG 24-04-10).
Restore benefits during the appeal process if the client appeals on or before the date of change.
