Oregon Department of Human Services, Self-Sufficiency Programs
Concurrent and Duplicate Program Benefits
Except as noted in this rule, an individual may not receive benefits from the Department of the same type (that is, cash, medical, or SNAP benefits) for the same period as a member of two or more different benefit groups (see OAR 461-110-0750 (Benefit Group)) or from two or more separate programs. Except as allowed in subsection (g) of this section, this provision includes a prohibition against an individual receiving TANF concurrently with another cash assistance program funded under Title IV-E of the Social Security Act.
An individual may receive EA, HSP, and TA-DVS benefits and cash payments from other programs for the same time period.
If a GA recipient becomes eligible for the TANF program, the GA recipient may not receive a TANF cash payment for themselves in the month a GA cash payment was received.
Except in the QMB-DW and QMB-SMF programs, a QMB recipient may also receive medical benefits from OSIPM, REFM, MAGI Child, MAGI Parent or Other Caretaker Relative, or MAGI Pregnant Woman. QMB-DW and QMB-SMF recipients may not receive any other medical assistance program offered under the state plan (see OAR 461-135-0730 (Specific Requirements; QMB, SMB, SMF)).
An individual may receive Chafee (see OAR 413-030-0400 (Purpose) to 413-030-0455) and TANF benefits during the same time period. As of January 1, 2013, receipt of both Chafee and TANF benefits will not result in an overpayment.
An individual may start TANF benefits in the same and final month that ERDC benefits are being received.
An individual may not receive benefits of the same type (that is, cash, medical, or SNAP benefits) for the same period from both Oregon and another state or tribal food distribution program, except as follows:
Medical benefits may be authorized for an eligible individual if the individual’s provider refuses to submit a bill to the Medicaid agency of another state and the individual would not otherwise receive medical care.
Cash benefits may be authorized for an individual in the Pre-TANF program if benefits from another state will end by the last day of the month in which the individual applied for TANF.
In the SNAP program, each individual who has been included as a member of the filing group in Oregon or another state is subject to all of the restrictions in section (2) of this rule.
An REF or TANF filing group may not receive REF or TANF benefits during the same month that an individual in that group was enrolled in or received assistance from the Office of Refugee Resettlement Matching Grant Program.
