RESIDENCY FRAUD CONVICTION

ISSUE DATE: 12/2014

MFIP, DWP, MSA, GA:
A person who admits in writing on the Combined Application Form (CAF) or Minnesota Transition Application Form (MTAF) that he/she has been convicted of making a fraudulent statement regarding residence in order to receive duplicate assistance simultaneously from 2 or more states is ineligible for 10 years from the date of conviction. This also applies if the county agency has other reliable verified documentation supporting its position about a client's residency fraud conviction.

Deny or terminate assistance for ONLY the convicted unit member. The remaining unit members may receive assistance if eligible.

Determine if you must count the income and assets of the ineligible person. Follow the current deeming policy. See 0015.48 (Whose Assets to Consider), 0016 (Income From People Not in the Unit).

The conviction must be in a state or federal court, not through an Administrative Disqualification Hearing (ADH) waiver. See 0025.24.06 (Disqualification for Fraud).


SNAP:

Follow MFIP, EXCEPT also apply the same penalty if the person has been convicted of making a fraudulent statement regarding identity in order to receive duplicate assistance.


GRH:

No provisions.
