Determining Annual or Semi-annual Reporting Status
The computer determines which households are identified as annual reporters, semi-annual reporters, or change reporters based on how you code other fields. Click here to read how the system determines which reporter status each case is assigned.
The system assigns a 24 month certification period for annual reporting households, a 12 month certification period for semi-annual reporting households, and a 99 month certification for public assistance households (also know as SAP households).
You will set the certification period for change reporting households to one or two months for SEO certifications and three or four months for households with one or more able-bodied adults without children receiving K or Y food benefits.
