N.J. Admin. Code § 10:87-8.5 - Time period for request of a hearing

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

A household may request a hearing on any action by the CWA or loss of benefits which occurred in the prior 90 days. Action by the CWA shall include a denial of a request for restoration of any benefits lost more than 90 days but less than a year prior to the request. In addition, at any time within a certification period, a household may request a fair hearing to dispute its current level of benefits. If a hearing request is not made within the period provided by the notice of adverse action, benefits shall be reduced or terminated as provided in the notice. However, if the household establishes that its failure to make the request within the advance notice period was for good cause, the CWA shall reinstate the benefits to the prior basis. When benefits are reduced or terminated due to a mass change, participation on the prior basis shall be reinstated only if the issue being contested is that NJ SNAP eligibility or benefits were improperly computed or that Federal law or regulation is being misapplied or misinterpreted by the CWA.
