ISSUE DATE: 12/2014

Federal regulations require states to conduct automated data exchanges for applicants and participants of federally funded assistance programs. The Income and Eligibility Verification System (IEVS) verifies client eligibility and the proper amount of benefits. It also investigates whether clients are getting benefits to which they are not entitled.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Social Security Administration (SSA), and Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) check clients' Social Security numbers with information from their data files. MAXIS uses the information from these agencies to produce IEVS matches telling workers of a possible source of unreported income or assets.

MAXIS does not always create IEVS matches, even when there is a discrepancy between information on MAXIS and the data received from match source agencies. To limit the volume of IEVS matches needing worker follow-up, MAXIS uses targeting to produce matches only within a certain dollar amount. See TARGETING in 0002.65 (Glossary: Suitable...). Targeting identifies the most effective IEVS matches for follow-up.

MAXIS produces a message on DAIL/DAIL when an IEVS match occurs. You cannot delete IEVS messages from DAIL. After you enter an action code on the resolution of the IEVS match, the DAIL/DAIL message drops off. If you code non-cooperation as the resolution, the DAIL/DAIL message will not drop off until the effective date of action.


No provisions.
