Field Ops Memo 2010-55:TAFDC, EAEDC and SNAP – Verification


Purpose of Memo
In an effort to streamline the verification process and simplify case managers’ efforts to assist clients who are experiencing economic hardship, the Department is issuing this Operations Memo.

Generally, while clients must verify both financial and nonfinancial eligibility at application, recertification and reevaluation, it is most often financial eligibility that needs to be re-verified.

The purpose of this memo is to advise case managers about:

  • permanent verifications;
  • avoiding “over-verification”;
  • when to ask for verifications;
  • alternative verifications;
  • optional verifications for SNAP; and
  • providing assistance in obtaining verifications.
