Field Ops Memo 2008-27: Maximized Categorical Eligibility for NPA Food Stamp Households


The Department is further expanding categorical eligibility rules for Non-Public Assistance food stamp (NPA/FS) households. Effective June 9, 2008 there will no longer be an asset test for most NPA/FS households.    Clients will be relieved of the burden of providing asset information and verifications. TAO staff will no longer have to request and review asset verifications or explore asset-related matches. This change will have a positive impact on many vulnerable Massachusetts households, particularly households with elder and disabled members.  The State Letter transmitting the Maximized Categorical Eligibility policy is currently being finalized.
