SI 02301.210 Reinstatement
Reinstatement of benefits requires a written notice that explains the basis for the action and how to appeal.
NOTE: The system sends the required notice for most reinstatement inputs. For an exception, see SI 02301.220 on unconfirmed eligibility (N05).
Follow these steps when an individual requests reinstatement:
|1||Review the recipient's record and any information the recipient offers to determine if you can reinstate benefits without a new application. See SI 02301.205 on reestablishing eligibility.|
|2||Follow applicable instructions on processing reports in SI 02301.010.|
|3||Conduct a redetermination as needed based on any changes that occurred or the period in nonpay. See SI 02305.022 on when to conduct an unscheduled redetermination.|
|4||Reinstate benefits for any nonpay month (or days in a nonpay month) that the recipient meets all eligibility requirements. If unable to confirm eligibility for a past nonpay period, follow N05 instructions in SI 02301.220.|
|5||Send a manual notice if the system cannot issue the appropriate notice for the reinstatement input. See NL 00801.010B for manual notice situations.|
|6||Conduct a continuing disability review (CDR) when required. See DI 13001.001 for events which may initiate a CDR and CDR instructions.|
|7||Follow appeals procedures in SI 04020.010 if the recipient is ineligible for benefits in the 60-day appeal period after the suspension/ termination notice and wishes to appeal.|
