Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022
the end of the mandatory disqualification period for voluntarily quitting a job
or reducing work effort without good cause, an individual may begin
participation in the program if he or she reapplies and is determined eligible
by the CWA.
1. In a situation where the NJ
SNAP case remains active during the disqualification period, a formal
reapplication is not needed. If the disqualified individual contacts the CWA,
the worker can verify that the individual is in compliance with the work
requirements and if so, can add him or her back onto the case.
(b) An individual's eligibility
may not be reestablished during a voluntary quit or work reduction
disqualification period except in accordance with (c) below.
Eligibility may be reestablished during a
voluntary quit or work reduction disqualification if the violator becomes
exempt from work registration requirements in accordance with
other than the exemptions at
(exemption due to receipt of UIB) and 10.2(b)7 (exemption due to WFNJ/TANF work
or training participation requirements). Additionally, if the individual,
during the disqualification period, obtains employment of at least 30 hours per
week or earns wages equivalent to the Federal minimum wage times 30 hours per
week, he or she may reapply for NJ SNAP benefits and, if otherwise eligible,
Individuals who have been disqualified for voluntarily quitting a job or
committing a work reduction shall carry their disqualification with them. If
they join a new household, they would still be subject to any remaining months
of the disqualification period.
