(a)   Case Review

 

Upon obtaining information that the certified household has received a one time payment, the caseworker shall review the case in order to determine if the amount received, in addition to the amount of resources listed on the application, will exceed the resource limitation for the particular household.

           

(b)   If Resources Do not Exceed Limits

 

If countable resources, including the lump sum, do not exceed the limitation the running record should be annotated to document the information received and the household should be notified in accordance with the procedures for reported changes.

 

(c)    If Resources Exceed Limits

 

If the total amount exceeds the allowable resource limitation, the household should be given an opportunity to update its entire resource statement. If it declines to do so or the amount of resources still exceeds the limit, the caseworker shall take action to terminate the household’s certification.
