FYI: The Importance of Following Up on DCF Matches



It is important to follow up on any DSS Match that alerts the Department to the placement of a dependent child. Case managers must check with the client to be sure that any other child continuing to receive assistance is still living in the home. While not eligible for SNAP, children absent from the home, including voluntary placement by DCF, might be considered temporarily absent from the home for cash assistance purposes and remain eligible for TAFDC or EAEDC.
