ACL 13-97: CalWORKs Changes To Asset Limits For Families That Include Elderly Or Disabled Household Members (12/12/13)

Aligning CalWORKs to CalFresh: In October 2011, the Food and Nutrition Service increased the asset limit for CalFresh households in which there are elderly and disabled members to $3,250. CalWORKs is following suit. Counties must make this change immediately.

In addition, if Counties denied or discontinued a family as a result of exceeding the $3000 asset limit, the county must re-evaluate eligibility for the AU and restore any benefits lost.   Same for reviewing overpayments for excess resources for any period after September 30, 2011.  [Download]
