If the client was previously assigned a recipient identification number (RIN), enter the number immediately above the first name entry. If a previously assigned RIN is used, enter the current or former case ID number in REMARKS to verify the RIN. When the Client Name and Address Inquiry (ANQR) or ACID inquiry shows a previously assigned RIN within the past 2 years for a client, follow the procedures in WAG 02-07-01. Use the chart in WAG 27-60-03 to determine which RIN to assign.
When a client has more than one RIN, decide which RIN to assign as follows:
If multiple RINs are found within a group in the order of preference, use the most recently assigned RIN.
Do not automatically assign a new RIN to a newborn. Some newborns are immediately connected upon birth with other DHS Services and a RIN is assigned under LO 193 or 194. Use this RIN. If no RIN is found, assign a new RIN.
If a case has been canceled for more than 24 months, the person's name may still appear on the Client Name and Address Inquiry (ANQR) screen. If the system will not permit entry of an old RIN. Assign a new RIN.
