Aid Paid Pending (APP)

 

 

 

Back to Table of Contents 

When a recipient files a timely request for a hearing on a notice of action (NOA) proposing to reduce, discontinue, or terminate aid, he/she may be entitled to APP the hearing. The responsibility for the initial determination regarding APP rests solely with the Appeals Section. APP must not be initiated or discontinued without instructions from the Appeals Section. When aid is to be paid pending the hearing, the Human Services Specialist (HSS)/Employment Case Manager (ECM) will receive specific instructions from the Appeals Section.

 

HSS/ECM Responsibility

 

 

 

 

 

Back to Table of Contents 

The Appeals Representative will send a notice advising the HSS/ECM of a pending State Hearing and provide APP instructions. If APP is authorized, benefits will continue unchanged only as it pertains to those actions under appeal. The HSS/ECM must promptly issue the aid in accordance with the APP instructions, and in no event shall the reinstatement of aid under APP instructions be delayed.  APP is to be issued within five working days of the receipt of the hearing request, or the date the regular scheduled aid payment would otherwise be issued, whichever is later.

 

Family Resource Center (FRC) Appeals Liaison

FRC Appeals Liaison will be responsible for resolution of any APP issuance problems.

Whether APP is ordered by the State Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) or the Appeals Section, aid can still be increased, reduced, or terminated for reasons other than those under appeal. Current CalWORKs regulation should be followed to adhere to Quarterly Reporting Prospective Budgeting (QRPB) and adequate and timely notice rules.
