When an application is turned in, it is reviewed for expedited service. It is important for applicants to complete the expedited questions on the application so that they can be considered for this service.
To qualify for expedited benefits an applicant must:
- Have less than $150 in gross monthly income and liquid resources (cash/ checking/savings) of $100 or less in the month of the application.
- Have monthly rent/mortgage and utilities that cost more than the applicant’s gross monthly income and liquid resources.
If applicants qualify for expedited benefits, they will receive them by the seventh day after applying. Benefits are NEVER received the same day as the application.
