1240-01-47-.09. PROMPTNESS OF CASE ACTION - QUESTIONABLE CITIZENSHIP

(1) When there is a question as to whether a member of an AG is in fact a US citizen, prompt action is to be taken on the application as follows: the person whose US citizenship cannot be verified within the promptness standard will be excluded from the AG. The income and resources of the excluded individual will not be taken into consideration in determining eligibility or the amount of payment for the remaining members unless the excluded member is a parent, spouse of an AG member or stepparent living in the home. Determination of eligibility and authorization of payment will not be denied or delayed pending determination of citizenship of the individual in question. When it is subsequently verified that the person is a US citizen he/she may be added to the assistance group (no new application required). Payments retroactive to the date of application (but not prior to 10/1/94) may be made if all other eligibility requirements were met at that time.
