No provisions.


People have an unemployable basis of eligibility for GA if they have been assessed by a vocational specialist and, in consultation with the county agency, have been determined to be unemployable.

It is the applicant's or recipient's duty to obtain a vocational assessment.

The person is considered employable if there are any jobs in the local labor market that the person is capable of performing, regardless of current openings.

The person must sign an SSI Interim Assistance Authorization (DHS-1795) (PDF) and/or Interim Assistance Agreement (Non-SSI) (DHS-1795A) (PDF), and apply for other maintenance benefits for which they appear eligible. See 0012.12 (Applying for Other Benefits).

The person must cooperate with a treatment, rehabilitation and/or training plan if there is one.

The person's eligibility under this category must be reassessed at least annually. Provide 30 days notice to the person before eligibility ends, informing the person of the date eligibility will end and the need for a vocational assessment.

See SUITABLE EMPLOYMENT in 0002.65 (Glossary: Suitable...), VOCATIONAL SPECIALIST in 0002.73 (Glossary: Victim...).
