A computer generated list is received in the Family Community Resource Center each month showing cases containing refugees or Cuban-Haitian entrants who have been in the U.S. 6 months and who will no longer be eligible for RRP benefits after their 8th month.
NOTE: Each month, RRP cases that have not been canceled by the 9th month are reported on the Refugee Delinquency Report. Take immediate action to correct the cases on the report.
When the list of cases with expiring refugee eligibility is received, take the following action for single adult and family RRP cases:
To notify the client, complete a Notice to Recipients of Refugee Assistance (Form 2418A), in triplicate.
Send the original to the client, and file the 2nd copy in the case record.
If the client appeals, handle as any other appeal. However, do not continue benefits past the 8th month unless the issue under appeal is the determination of the correct 8-month period.
