OLGT 2017-101 - ABAWD Clock Reset and Procedural Updates
Able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs) are limited to 3 countable months of eligibility for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits during a 36-month period, unless the client is exempt or meets the ABAWD Work Program (WP) Requirement.
The 36-month clock that began 01/01/2015 expires 12/31/2017. The new clock will run 01/01/2018 through 12/31/2020.
This Transmittal advises staff of updated Online Guide content related to ABAWD clients, including:
the ABAWD clock reset and how previous sanctions will appear in BEACON;
the SNAP Work Requirement Medical Report form; and
the ABAWD Requirements Script that case managers must use. Detailed instructions and a link to this script were added to the ABAWD Work Program Requirements Overview page.
