Field Ops Memo 2009-38A: Clarification – 24 Month Certifications for Elderly/Disabled SNAP Households
Field Operations Memo 2009-38 transmitted procedures for assigning 24-
month SNAP certification periods to households where all adult members
are elderly/disabled. It also described the BEACON data-fix which
occurred on June 27-28 that automatically extended the certification
periods of certain elderly/disabled households to 24 months.
However, households with July or August recertification dates which
received an extension notice had already been sent a standard Notice of
Expiration (NOE) with instructions to complete and return a SNAP
recertification form. This has resulted in confusion as to whether the
household must complete a recertification, as indicated in the NOE, or
whether the household does not need to take any action except report
changes as required.
This Field Operations Memo explains procedures for handling these cases.
