Transfer of Resources




Food Stamp Table of Contents


In the event the caseworker establishes that an applicant/recipient household knowingly transferred resources for the purpose of qualifying or attempting to qualify for Food Stamp benefits, the caseworker sends the household a notice of denial explaining the reason for and length of the disqualification.  The disqualification shall begin in the month of application.


If the household is participating at the time of the discovery of the transfer, a notice of disposition explaining the reason for and length of the disqualification is sent.  The period of disqualification is effective with the first allotment issued after the adverse notice period has expired, unless the household requested a fair hearing and continued benefits.
