WAC 388-406-0060

What happens when my application is denied?

(1) We (the department) deny your application for cash or Basic Food benefits if:
(a) You do not show for your interview appointment for cash or Basic Food if required under WAC 388-452-0005, you have not rescheduled, and your application is over thirty days old; or
(b) We do not have the information we need to determine your eligibility within ten days of requesting the information from your assistance unit (AU) under WAC 388-490-0005, and you did not ask for additional time to give us the information; or
(c) Your entire AU does not meet certain eligibility criteria to get benefits; or
(d) For Basic Food, your application has not been processed by the sixtieth day because of a delay on your part.
(2) If we deny your application, you do not get benefits unless:
(a) You mistakenly apply for benefits you already get; or
(b) We reconsider your eligibility under WAC 388-406-0065 and you are eligible to get benefits.
(3) We can reconsider if you are eligible for benefits under the requirements of WAC 388-406-0065 even after your application is denied.
(4) We give or send a letter to you explaining why your application was denied as required under WAC 388-458-0011.
(5) If you disagree with our decision about your application, you can ask for a fair hearing. If we deny your application because we do not have enough information to decide that you are eligible, the hearing issue is whether you are eligible using:
(a) Information we already have; and
(b) Any more information you can give us.
