TIPS FOR COMPLETING THE RECERTIFICATION FORM

Whenever you see "Public Assistance" or "PA" on the recertification form, it means "Family Assistance" and/or "Safety Net Assistance." We call both programs "Public Assistance." PA and the other programs for which you can recertify using this recertification form were created to give temporary help to those in need. Certain programs limit how long you can get help, so it is important for you to achieve self-sufficiency as soon as you can. The social services district (SSD) is there to help you with achieving self-sufficiency. In order to do so, we must know who you are and what you need. This is why you must fill out a recertification form.

As a part of the recertification process, the SSD will ask you to provide and verify information about yourself and other individuals for whom you are recertifying. A listing of documentation requirements, which can be found at the end of these instructions, shows the kinds of information you may need to provide and the kinds of documents that can verify this information. For instance, in order to prove who you are, you can supply photograph identification, a driver's license, a United States passport, a naturalization certificate, hospital or doctor's records, or adoption papers. In addition, the SSD may interview you as part of the recertification process. The SSD may combine interviews for multiple programs where possible.

The recertification form and these instructions are numbered by section to help you. Please keep the following in mind when filling out the recertification form:

In addition to the LDSS-3174: "New York State Recertification Form for Certain Benefits and Services," make sure you have copies of the following informational booklets, available from the SSD or www.otda.ny.gov:

IF YOU ARE BLIND OR SERIOUSLY VISUALLY IMPAIRED, WOULD YOU LIKE TO RECEIVE WRITTEN NOTICES IN AN ALTERNATIVE FORMAT?

SECTION 1: CHECK EACH PROGRAM YOU OR ANY HOUSEHOLD MEMBER ARE RECERTIFYING FOR

Check () the box for each program that you or any household member wants to recertify for.

Medicaid includes the Medicaid, Medicaid Buy-In for Working People with Disabilities, and Family Planning Benefit programs. When you see "MA" on the recertification form, it means "Medicaid," which was previously called "Medical Assistance." You may recertify for MA using this recertification form only if you are also recertifying for Public Assistance (PA) or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) at the same time. If you want to recertify for Medicaid and SNAP, check () the "Medicaid (MA) and SNAP" box. If you want to recertify for Medicaid and PA, check () the "Medicaid (MA) and PA" box.

If you want to recertify only for the Medicare Savings Program (MSP), you must apply with Form DOH-4328, which your worker can provide to you.

Providing this information is voluntary. It will not affect the eligibility of the persons recertifying or the level of benefits received. The reason for requesting this information is to ensure that program benefits are distributed without regard to race, color, or national origin.

If you or anyone in your household is recertifying for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), you must list everyone in the household, even if they are not recertifying for SNAP.

SECTION 10: CERTIFICATION

Read carefully the statements at the bottom of this section, then sign and date the certification attesting to the citizenship or non-citizen with satisfactory immigration status of each person who is recertifying for any of the following programs. If anyone recertifying is not a U.S. citizen, Native American, or national, check () the programs for which that person is recertifying and has non-citizen with satisfactory immigration status:

"Satisfactory non-citizen status" means a non-citizen status that does not make the person ineligible for benefits from a given program. Please note that different programs have different non-citizen status requirements. LDSS-4148B, "Book 2: What You Should Know About Social Services Programs," contains more information about satisfactory non-citizen statuses. You may also contact your SSD for more information.

Any adult household member or authorized representative may sign the certification for all recertifying household members. For example, a parent without citizenship or satisfactory non-citizen status may sign the certification for a child with citizenship or satisfactory non-citizen status. If a recertifying household member is under age 18 (or is age 18 or older but unable to sign his/her own name due to a medical impairment or disability), a household member who is age 18 or older must sign for him/her.

Original Page 7

PUB-1313 DD Statewide (Rev. 7/16)

When signing for another household member, sign your own name. For example, Mary Doe, when signing for infant Johnny Doe, should sign "Mary Doe."

Checking a box and signing the certification means that you certify, under penalty of perjury, that you and/or the persons for whom you are signing, are a U.S. citizen, Native American, national, or non-citizen with satisfactory immigration status, for each program for which you/they are recertifying. If you do not check one of the boxes or provide a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) number for a non-citizen who is recertifying, that person may not receive assistance.

You should not sign the certification for yourself or any other person who is not a U.S. citizen, Native American, or national, or who does not have non-citizen with satisfactory immigration status. Non-citizens without satisfactory immigration status are not eligible for PA, SNAP benefits, or Medicaid (except Medicaid for a pregnant person or treatment of an emergency medical condition). Such persons also may be ineligible for certain Services (such as child or adult preventive/protective services).

We may confirm the non-citizen status of any or all household members recertifying for PA, SNAP benefits, or Medicaid by submitting the information you give us to the USCIS. Information received from USCIS may affect your household's eligibility and level of benefits.
