Title: Work Registration

Work Registration
  • The first step in determining participation
    required in the Employment and Training Program

There are 3 Steps...
  • ... to determining Work Registration, ABAWD
    Status, and Target Codes
  • Is individual exempt Work Registration?
  • If not, determine ABAWD status
  • If not exempt Work Registration, select Target
  • We will view each of these steps in order,
    beginning with Work Registration (WR).

Work Registration
  • Work Registration (WR) is a Technical Eligibility
    requirement for the FS program.
  • Every able-bodied household member age 18 through
    59 must work register in all 120 counties, unless
    otherwise exempt.
  • In some situations, a Head of Household age 16 or
    17 may be required to work register.

WR Exemptions
  • Work Registration exemption reasons are listed in
    Volume IIA, MS 1650.
  • Go to the online manual, and complete the WR
    Exemptions section of your Notes Pages.
  • Go ahead and do that, before you continue the

Explaining Exemptions
  • Because some of those exemptions can be
    confusing, the following slides contain
    explanations of a few of the more confusing

Item A
  • The exception in item A only applies to a 16 or
    17 year old who has a case in his/her own name
    and who has dropped out of school.
  • Example Betty is 17 and lives alone. Betty
    dropped out of high school. Betty is required to
    Work Register.

Item D
  • Remember that all KTAP households are
    Categorically Eligible for SNAP.
  • Also, the KTAP program has its own work
    requirements for every adult recipient.

Item E
  • Only one member of the SNAP case may be exempt WR
    for caring for a child under 6 or a disabled
  • The child or disabled person does not have to be
    a member of the case, or even live at the same
    address as the household.

One parent is Exempt WR
One parent is Non-Exempt
Item F
  • The Office of Employment and Training (OET)
    requires that recipients of UIB report a set
    number of job applications.

Item G
  • Most participants in a drug or alcohol treatment
    program are involved in related activities during
    regular work hours.
  • An authorized representative from the treatment
    program will probably be applying for benefits
    for these participants.

Item H
  • Example John works 25 hrs/wk at 10.00 per hour.
    25 x 10.00250/wk.
  • This is more than minimum wage multiplied by 30,
    so Johnny is exempt WR.
  • The hours or amount of in-kind income can be
    verified by a written statement.

Verifying Unable to Work
  • On Blackboard, there is a link for a document
    titled, Suggestions for Using and Explaining

Your Mission Go ahead and review this document,
which details use of this form for ETP purposes.
Verifying Unable to Work
  • If the individual is currently receiving SSI, or
    receiving RSDI or another benefit based on
    disability, this is automatically verified.

Voluntary Quit Volume IIA, MS 4205
  • If a member is NOT exempt Work Registration,
    Voluntary Quit rules apply.
  • If Exempt WR, Voluntary Quit does NOT apply!
  • The following slides contain details...

What is Voluntary Quit?
  • If an individual has voluntarily quit a job or
    reduced work hours to below 30 per wk (or 30 hrs
    multiplied by minimum wage), the member may be
    disqualified for voluntary quit.
  • The quit/reduction must have occurred
  • Within 30 days of the application date, or
  • At any time during receipt of benefits.

Voluntary Quit Criteria
  • In order to be considered voluntary quit, BOTH of
    the following criteria must apply
  • The job was at least 30 hrs per week, or weekly
    earnings were equal to minimum wage multiplied by
    30 hours.
  • The quit was without good cause.

Good Cause Reasons
  • Good Cause Reasons for Voluntary Quit are in
    Volume IIA, MS 4250
  • Follow the above link to this Manual Section, and
    complete the Good Cause for Voluntary Quit
    section of your Notes Pages.

Voluntary Quit System Entry
  • Heres the screen containing the Voluntary Quit

Work Registration Forms
  • For each adult household member who is not exempt
    WR, provide a copy of the FSET-101
  • Annotate the number of copies provided on the
    PAFS-203, and have the client sign it.
  • Assignment
  • Obtain copies of these 2 forms, and review them
    so you can explain them to a client.

KAMES Entries
  • Now, lets talk about the KAMES system, and the
    entries to make in order to
  • Exempt individuals from WR/ETP
  • Register individuals for ETP
  • The next slides show the screens that contain
    WR/ETP questions...

WR Exemption- Caring for a Child or Disabled
The first member screen has most of the exemption
  • Answer Y to FS, and enter the youngest
    childs DOB for every adult HH member, if there
    is a child under 18 in the home.
  • If the child/disabled individual exempts the
    member from WR, answer Y to the next question.

Other WR/ETP Exemptions
  • Same screen
  • The bottom of this screen contains many WR/ETP
    exemption questions.
  • Answering Y to any of these 6 questions will
    exempt the member from ETP.

Disability Benefits Received
  • If a member receives disability benefits, answer
    the correct question on this screen.
  • A Y in any of these fields will exempt them
    from WR.

How to Work Register
  • If the WR question is not protected, answer it,
    and enter the date.
  • You will also assign a Target Code, but that
    depends on ABAWD Status.

Pending KTAP?
  • If the individual has a pending KTAP application,
    he/she can be exempt WR.
  • Answer Y here to use that exemption.

School Attendance Exemption
  • The question for school attendance is on the same
    screen as WR.
  • However, these entries can be tricky.
  • When we meet in class, we will practice using
    this exemption.

Another Member Caring for Child
  • This question asks if another member of the case
    is Exempt WR for caring for this members child.
  • Be sure to answer this question correctly,
    depending on who is exempt ETP for the child.

Failure to Cooperate
  • Failure to cooperate with WR requirements results
    in member disqualification.
  • These disqualifications must be served, then
    cured before eligibility is reestablished, unless
    the member becomes exempt from WR.
  • DO NOT DELETE any FS work related
    disqualification, even after it has been cured.

Discourage Refusal
  • If a client initially refuses to cooperate with
    work requirements, be sure to explain what that
  • Discuss disqualifications with the member, and
    make every attempt to gain their cooperation,
    when possible.

How Do You Feel?
  • Do you feel comfortable with the first step of
    ETP- Work Registration?
  • Before you continue, return to Blackboard, and
    complete the Work Registration Activity to
    check your understanding of this topic.

Next Steps...
  • If an individual is required to Work Register for
    ETP, we then look at whether the individual is
    exempt from ABAWD requirements, or whether they
    are already in compliance.
  • Please close this window, return to Blackboard,
    and continue with ABAWD Requirements.
