​ABAWD Client Responsibilities

ABAWD policy imposes responsibilities on SNAP applicants and recipients.  Policy requires ABAWDs to verify whether they are meeting the ABAWD work requirements or an ABAWD exemption at application, mid-certification review, or certification renewal and to report when they are no longer meeting work requirements

Note: The client must report when their total work or participation hours drop below 20 hours per week.  In order to be timely, the client must report this situation by 10th of the month that follows the change. When this happens, you must decide if ABAWD policy allows the client to continue receiving SNAP benefits.  If they use all their "K months" and fail to meet work requirements or an ABAWD exemption, close the ABAWD's SNAP benefit.
