1240-1-14-.14(5)

Households certified under joint processing procedures should be certified for up to twelve months in accordance with 1240-1-7 and 1240-1-5.

 

(a)     Normal Certification Periods

 

Households that are certified on an expedited basis and have provided all necessary verification required in Section 1240-1-16 prior to certification will be assigned a normal certification period.

 

(b)    Optional Certification Periods

 

If verification is postponed, the caseworker may certify these households for the month of application only.  However, at the worker’s option, a normal certification period may be assigned to these households whose circumstances would otherwise warrant a longer certification period.  In either case, benefits will not be continued past the month of application if postponed verification(s) are not provided.
