1240-1-3-.15 (5)

The Food Stamp regulations state that a household member who cannot comply with the enumeration requirement within the application processing timeframe may participate in the Food Stamp Program as long as he/she can show good cause for the non-compliance. Good cause must be shown monthly for a household member to continue to participate.

 

Good cause exists when a household member provides proof (either documentary or collateral) that he/she has made every effort to supply SSA or DHS with the information necessary to complete an application for a Social Security number. Good cause does not include delays due to illness, lack of transportation or temporary absences.
