Rule Rule 461-115-0690
Verification For SNAP Expedited Service; Time Limits


This rule establishes verification requirements for expedited services in the SNAP program.

(1)

An applicant meeting the SNAP program expedited services criteria under OAR 461-135-0575 (SNAP Expedited Services) and determined eligible for SNAP benefits must provide verification of his or her identity either through a collateral contact or documentary evidence before benefits may be issued. Benefits may not be delayed solely because other eligibility factors are not verified. The filing group (see OAR 461-110-0370 (Filing Group; SNAP)) must provide the postponed verification within the timeframes established in section (3) of this rule.

(2)

A filing group that was receiving SNAP benefits in another state during the same month the filing group applies for expedited services in Oregon must verify that the filing group will not use SNAP benefits from both the other state and Oregon in the same month. The filing group may provide the verification by signing a statement attesting to the following:

(a)

The filing group did not receive SNAP benefits from the other state for the month in which the filing group is applying for SNAP benefits in Oregon; and

(b)

If the filing group receives SNAP benefits from the other state for a month in which the filing group receives SNAP benefits in Oregon, the filing group must comply with the following requirements:

(A)

The filing group may not use the other state’s SNAP benefits; and

(B)

The filing group must report receipt of the other state’s SNAP benefits and turn them in to the Department within five days of receipt. Failure to comply with this requirement constitutes an intentional program violation.

(3)

A filing group that does not provide all necessary postponed verification becomes ineligible as follows:

(a)

A filing group applying on or before the 15th of the month becomes ineligible the last day of the month of application.

(b)

A filing group applying after the 15th of the month becomes ineligible the last day of the month following the month of application.

(4)

When SNAP benefits under expedited services close or change due to postponed verification, notice is provided in accordance with OAR 461-175-0300 (Notice Situation; Prior Notice).
