Ops Memo 2014-22: TAFDC, EAEDC and SNAP – Limitations on Program Eligibility


In response to a recent United States Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service review of the Department’s SNAP application, new questions are being added to BEACON regarding certain unlawful activities restrict the eligibility of SNAP. Related questions are also being added for TAFDC and EAEDC clients in accordance with Department regulations. In order to correctly determine eligibility, a series of questions must be asked of applicants and clients (hereafter referred to as clients):

  • at application and reapplication;
  • at redetermination and recertification; and
  • when a new member is added to the household.

If a client answers Yes, or fails to answer any of the questions, additional pages will be required to capture further information about the client. Effective with BEACON Build 46.2, scheduled for March 17, 2014, the new Eligibility Limitations questions must be asked, for all household members age 16 or older.

Purpose of Memo
The purpose of this Operations Memo is to advise staff about the Eligibility Limitations functionality changes in BEACON.

Obsolete Memo
This Operations Memo obsoletes Operations Memo 2012-30.
