Register the ABE or paper application in IES after it has been screened. For walk-in applicants who have not completed a paper application, print the signature page in IES and ask the applicant to review and sign it. If there are 2 adults in the case, the application can be registered with one signature. But if the applicant wants cash, tell them that the other adult will have to sign the application.
After registration the eligibility worker must approve or deny the case within established timeframes.
