IMPOSITION OF THE DISQUALIFICATION PENALTY

Table of Contents

 

A disqualification penalty will be imposed only after the issuance of a Final Administrative Order finding the individual guilty of committing an intentional program violation.The period of disqualification starts no later than the second calendar month following the date of the final order.

 

In the event that a State or Federal court finds an individual guilty of having committed an IPV, impose the penalty according to the terms of the court order.If imposing the penalty, begin the penalty no later than the second calendar month following the date of the court order, usually the next recurring month.

 

When the individualís disqualification results from a prior receipt of AFDC and/or Families First, and the case is closed, the disqualification will run as if the person is an active recipient.

 

A notice will be sent to an individual who has been found to have intentionally violated the Families First program by a final order or has entered into a consent agreement (as discussed later in this chapter).This notice will include:

 

        The period of disqualification.

 

        The amount of payment the AU will receive during the disqualification period.

 

        If the Families First case is closed, information that the disqualification will run as if the person was an active recipient.
