The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) has issued guidance regarding an extension of a federal waiver allowing combining the reminder notice and notice of adverse action for households that fail to submit a complete semiannual report form (SAR 7) by the required filing date.
The waiver extension continues the current practice of sending the NA 960X notice to households that did not timely submit a SAR 7 and the NA 960Y notice to households that submitted an incomplete SAR 7. Both the NA 960X and the NA 960Y act as combined reminder notice and notice of adverse action.
Counties must send the NA 960X or the NA 960Y no later than 10 days after the SAR 7 report should have been submitted. If a household files a complete SAR 7 during the 10 days period following the date the NA 960X or the NA 960Y is mailed, the county must provide benefits no later than 10 days after the normal benefit issuance date.
