OLGT 2019-16: SNAP: Interim Report Warning and Closing Notices

Currently, a household with an outstanding Interim Report (IR) is sent an IR Warning Notice if the IR process is not initiated in BEACON 19 days after the Department mails the IR to the household.  Because the Warning Notice informs the household that the case will close if the IR is not submitted, the Department does not send a separate closing notice if the IR is not received after the Warning Notice is issued.

Pursuant to revised regulations from FNS, the Department will now mail a separate closing notice if an IR is not received after the Warning Notice is sent.

With this update, there will be two versions of the IR Closing notice:  

  • No IR Received, and  
  • Missing Verifications.  

30 days after the IR is mailed, one of these notices will be mailed if the IR is not processed in BEACON.  The notice for No IR Received will be mailed if the IR is not received.  The notice for Missing Verifications will be mailed if the IR is initiated in BEACON, a VC-1 is subsequently generated, and mandatory verifications are still outstanding.  

Additionally, the IR Warning Notice has been revised and will replace the current Warning Notice.
