ACIN I-13-06 – Transitional Food Stamp Benefits (March 13, 2006)

Just a reminder on when to issue Transitional Food Stamps (T.S.) given the joy of automation. (Can you say “CalWIN”?). As stated in ACIN I-21-04, “the transition between regular food stamp and T.S. should not result in a break-in-aid.” This means, with automation, that households should receive benefits on their previous EBT food stamp issuance date provided the proper noticing requirements for the CalWORKs and Food Stamp programs have been met. (MPP Section 63-504.132). [Download]
