Note: SNAP units entitled to the Standard Medical Deduction remain eligible for the deduction if they state that their medical expenses continue to exceed $35. Do not verify expenses exceed $35 unless their statement is questionable.
NOTE: Complete a Wage Verification System (AWVS) clearance for all unit members if benefits are approved only on the Mercury rolls or the case is in Mid-Point Reporting. If a person has multiple SSNs, complete an AWVS on each number.
