Families First Online Policy Manual





Table of Contents


Enumeration is the procedure by which the Social Security Administration (SSA) in cooperation with the Department assigns and/or verifies Social Security numbers (SSN) for Families First applicants/recipients.


        Each applicant/recipient included in the AU must furnish his/her Social Security account number (SSN) or numbers if more than one number has been issued.


        If an individual does not have a Social Security number or does not know the number, he/she must apply for a number prior to being approved for benefits or prior to being added to an existing AU.


        If the caretaker fails or refuses to enumerate a mandatory assistance unit member, then that individual is technically ineligible and must not be included in the assistance unit.
