    • Mid-Point Report; and

When the unit reports a required change, review the effect of the change on the unit's eligibility and benefit amount. For income related changes, consider the date the first payment is received (as a result of the change) as the date the client learned about the change.

If the income belongs to a new member, the unit must report if the income of all those who are in the unit exceeds the Gross Income limit for the unit size that the unit was originally notified. When the number in the SNAP unit changes, the Redetermination Fact Sheet is centrally sent telling the unit its new Gross Income Standard for reporting changes of income for SNAP.

    NOTE: For TANF cash benefits, when the ending of employment is reported (PM 10-02-04-c). 

  • Change due to adding a new unit member (PM 18-04-07).

See PM 19-07-07 for reporting changes on the Mid-Point Report form and the Mid-Point Reporting  process.
