ACL 14-07: CalWORKs Program: AB 419 Changes To The Temporary Absence Rules For Children In A Public Hospital (1/16/14)

AB 419  changes to the temporary absence rules in the CalWORKs program for children receiving treatment in a public hospital. As a result of AB 419, there is no longer any
limit on the length of time a child is considered temporarily absent from the home while receiving treatment in a public hospital, and aid will continue for that child for the entire
period of the hospitalization.  The new law became effective 1/1/14, so the letter also discusses automation workarounds and supplemental payments. [Download]
