Households consisting only of SSI applicants or recipients may apply for recertification at the SSA Office. As in the case of application for initial certification, SSA will interview the applicant, obtain any readily available verification, complete Form SSA-4233 and send this information to the county office. The worker completes the application process and timely approves or denies applications for recertification in accordance with Section 6 of Subchapter 9. In processing the application, information supplied by the SSA is to be used. The worker may not contact the household and request them to provide additional information or verification unless the application is improperly completed, mandatory verification is missing or the worker determines that certain information on the application is questionable. When additional information or verification is necessary, the worker makes a home visit to obtain the additional information or verification. In no event may the applicant be required to come to the county office to finalize the eligibility determination. • 1
Duplicate Participation. Checks to detect duplicate participation shall be made by the worker, using the computer terminal, at the time of certification, recertification and whenever a new member is added to an existing household. An online check of Social Security Numbers for all persons in the household will be made at the time the case is entered into the computer system.
