Income and Non-Cash Benefits Children’s income and non-cash benefits should now be recorded under the Head of Household’s income and non-cash benefits. Multiple adults in the same household should keep their incomes and benefits separate. Health insurance is still required to be recorded for each client, including children When a child ages into adulthood, their information should be updated to include their income and benefits
Interim Review Interim Review is utilized to record updates and the Annual Assessment. Updating on the client profile page will no longer be valid. Clients who stayed one year or longer are required to complete the Annual assessment 1 year from client anniversary+/- 30 days for APR purpose. Please select “Annual Assessment” on Interim. Bowman is working on creating an alert to indicate when annual assessment is due, but this is not available yet. You can create a case plan, and a reminder will be set up that way.
New Workflow For single clients go directly to the Entry/Exit tab For family, go to the households tab first then go to Entry/Exit tab Updates will no longer be made to the client profile page. All updates will be under interim review—Select “update” For outreach projects, including PATH, we will have separated training.
