Verification is the proof that validates a client’s assertions such as income, allowable expenses, deductions, and case circumstances used to determine initial and continued eligibility. When determining if a verification is sufficient, case managers must be primarily concerned with how adequately the document or other verification substantiates the household's statements in light of the case statements as a whole. The types, methods, and frequency of verifications vary across programs (SNAP, TAFDC, and EAEDC) and eligibility factors.
Scheduled for December, a number of BEACON enhancements will be implemented to the verification process. Prior to these enhancements, all Online Guide sections pertaining to verifications will be consolidated into one Cross Program book in the Online Guide.
The purpose of this Online Guide Transmittal is to:
- advise staff of changes to where verification information is located in the OLG, and
- identify two new chapters in the Online Guide Verifications book entitled Verification Types and Verification Methods.
