When a person completes a face-to-face screening interview or a mail-in application, they identify the type of aid they want to apply for. Their signature on the signature page of the completed application is their written statement regarding the request. Treat an application as a written request for all programs unless one of the following occurs.
Situation 1: The person states in writing they do not want a program. Their signature on the application is verification of their request.
Situation 2: The application is for help with medical only. This may be a hospital application, an application for long-term care, a short spenddown application, or a QMB or SLIB application.
Situation 3: The application is for SNAP benefits only.
