Table of Contents


The caseworker must:


·        Verify the newborn’s date of birth.


·        Verify the child’s conception date if the child is born more than 10 months after the application or reapplication month.  A physician’s statement of the conception date is acceptable proof.


·        Verify rape or incest if the individual is claiming good cause for exemption to the Family Cap provision.  Doctor’s statements, court records, supporting statements from protective services, are examples of verification for granting good cause.
