Untimely Certification Renewals
CRs received after the 15th are considered untimely and must be processed within 30 days. Clients who submit their renewal late lose their right to uninterrupted benefits.
Certification renewal notices state that clients should submit their renewals between the 28th and the 1st of their certification month. If a client provides the CR on the 2nd or later, it is considered an initial application. At this time, it will follow all the necessary steps of the initial application process. These clients could be eligible for expedited services.
