Current through Register Vol. 40, No. 39, September 30, 2021

(a) Who may file. Each individual seeking public assistance, or another person authorized to act on the applicant's behalf, shall submit an application for public assistance to the department.
(b) Applications. The applicant or person authorized to act on behalf of the applicant shall sign the application. If the applicant or the applicant's representative signs by mark, the names and addresses of two witnesses shall be required. A telephonic signature, by the applicant or the applicant's authorized representative, shall be an acceptable form of attestation by the applicant when applying for public assistance and shall not be denied legal effect based solely on its format. When a telephonic signature is accepted, measures shall be taken by the department to verify the identity of each applicant. These measures shall be designed to safeguard applicants against any form of identity theft or invasion of privacy. Memoranda of understanding shall be required with any nonprofit organization that wants to assist applicants with applications for public assistance and accept telephonic signatures for those applications on behalf of the department.
(c) Interview. An interview shall be required at the time of application for food assistance and TANF assistance. An interview may be required at the time of initial application for child care assistance if information provided by the applicant is incomplete, unclear, or contradictory.
