SI 02305.015 Limited Issue Cases

A. Policy

1. General

A limited issue (LI) case requires development of a specific issue or event without conducting an RZ. When developing LIs, if a deemor's income caused the diary to be set, exclusions and allocations for the recipient and all the members of the deeming unit should be reviewed for accuracy and updated if necessary.

The LI case profile code is X.

2. Using RZwiz to conduct RZ and LI interviews

Use RZwiz with all LIs. Also use RZwiz with all RZs, LI and wage-related diary interviews, and wage-related diaries. See SI 02305.071.

D. Procedure

1. Clearing a LI or closing a LI event

a. Resolve the diary or identified issue

Resolve the diary or identified issue per appropriate POMS instructions outlined in SI 02305.015B.

NOTE: For all LIs involving residents of Texas receiving type H unearned income for any month(s) after 04/96, see Dallas regional POMS instructions on processing Diaz cases at SI DAL00835.380C.

b. For LIs on Non-MSSICS cases

For LIs on non-MSSICS cases, clear the LI using 1719B input. See SM 01501.003 for instructions on types of RZ inputs. Delete all diaries using Direct SSR input on the UDIA screen in MSSICS. For 5B diaries, make appropriate input to the MS field per SM 01301.950 and SM 01501.250B.

c. For LIs Sseeded into MSSICS

For LIs seeded into MSSICS, MSSICS will delete the 5B, 5H, D8, I8, K6, KB, KC, K7, K8, K9, KP, KE, KZ, S2, SB, R8, 3D and U5 diaries upon completion of the appropriate Development Documentation Screen (MSOM MSSICS 022.012 through MSOM MSSICS 022.018). Clear the DI diary on the UDIA screen through Direct SSR Update.

NOTE: When you complete processing a S2, U5, or D8 diary you MUST close the MSSICS LI event at the same time that you clear the diary.

If the MSSICS LI event and the S2, U5, or D8 diary are not cleared at the same time, the Diaries SDO report on MI Central will continue to count the diaries as pending.

NOTE: If the case is placed into non-payment and the LI is deleted from the SSR, the LI event will remain open in MSSICS and the LI event will continue to show as pending on MI Central. The MSSICS file must be locked by the manclear process in order to clear the LI from SUMS/MCAS MI Central. If the case becomes “stuck” because manclearing does not remove it from the list of pending LIs, report it to your Regional Office. They will delete the case from SUMS/MCAS MI Central.

2. Clearing a LI or closing a LI event upgraded to an unscheduled RZ

Development of a LI may lead to completion of an unscheduled RZ as described in SI 02305.022A.5. Clear a LI that results in an unscheduled RZ, as follows:

a. For LIs not seeded into MSSICS

For LIs not seeded into MSSICS, clear the case using a disposition code M (face-to-face interview) or N (telephone interview). Clear the diaries via the Diary function in Direct SSR Update per MSOM BUSSR 002.019. The diaries must be cleared before or at the same time as the RZ input to avoid the VP reject (SM 01501.005).

b. For LIs seeded into MSSICS

For LIs seeded into MSSICS:

  • Upgrade the event to a Redetermination with or without recap on PMEN (see MSOM MSSICS 004.008);

  • Complete an RZ path; and

  • Close the RZ event.
