TANF Case Adjusted or
Denied Due to Time Limit Policies
FS Case Not Converted
To notify staff
- that SAVERR automatically adjusted the TANF benefit for a client when the state or federal time limit was reached, or county hardship was removed.
- that SAVERR could not also automatically adjust the associated Food Stamp case because the amount in Other Income was smaller
than the old TANF grant amount.
- to investigate whether the correct amount of TANF is counted in the Food Stamp case.

The RF-229 is produced by state office throughout the month, as discrepancies are identified.
Each report provides
- identifying information about the client/case associated with the Food Stamp case that could not be automatically adjusted.
- instructions to staff about investigating the need for other case action.
