Time Limits




Table of Contents


The eligibility and case management system case file must contain:


        The reasons for any determination regarding time limits (exemptions for child only or extensions). The factual basis for any determination must be documented as part of the eligibility and case management system file by noting the appropriate code that specifies the reason for the action (child only exemption or extension). If the AU is not entitled to an exemption or extension, the specific factual reasons for that determination must be recorded in the eligibility and case management system.


        Documentation of the findings of the 59-month time count review. This review is required of all cases approaching the 60-month lifetime limit and should include an assessment of the countable months.
