REMOVING A PERSON FROM THE UNIT

ISSUE DATE: 12/2014

See 0014.09 (Assistance Units - Temporary Absence) for people who remain in a unit while temporarily absent.

Participants who leave the home or lose eligibility during a month are eligible for the entire month if they were eligible on the 1st day of the month. Do not prorate the last month's benefits.

Determine whether to continue counting the person's income. See 0008.06.15 (Removing or Recalculating Income), 0016 (Income From People Not in the Unit).

If removing a person results in an increase in benefits and the change was reported too late to adjust the grant, issue a corrective payment. See 0024 (Payments).

If removing a person results in a decrease in benefits, do not reduce the grant until you can give proper notice. Determine if the unit was overpaid and pursue collection. See 0007 (Reporting), 0008.06 (Implementing Changes - General Provisions), 0008.06.01 (Implementing Changes - Program Provisions), 0025 (Benefit Adjustments and Recovery), 0026 (Notices).

If a child moves to live with a different caregiver in another county, see 0006.09 (Moving Between Counties - Minor Children), 0008.06.21 (Change in County of Residence).

For information on participants who move to another county, see 0006.06 (Moving Between Counties - Participants), 0008.06.21 (Change in County of Residence).


MFIP, DWP:

Remove the needs and income of a person (other than person 01) who does not meet temporary absence criteria. See 0014.09 (Assistance Units Temporary Absence). Close the case if this results in no eligible child, unless an eligible caregiver is in the home and the caregiver remains eligible. If person 01 leaves the home or dies, close the case. Other unit members will need to file a new application. The effective date of closing is the month after the month the change was reported, allowing for proper notice. See 0005.09.03 (When People Must Complete an Application), 0014 (Assistance Units), 0026 (Notices).

Stop counting the needs and income of a participant starting with the payment month you remove the person from the unit.

Stop counting the income of a non unit member whose income you deemed starting with the payment month after the month the person left the household or ceased to have financial responsibility for 1 or more members or the unit.

There is no overpayment if the unit reported the change timely AND you act timely.
