RE: Errata - Kansas Economic and Employment Support Manual (KEESM) Revision No. 14
This errata is in reference to the change in Revision No. 14 regarding verification of dependent care expenses. Refer to the Summary of Changes, item I.A. (1).
One section of the manual, 9211.2, Verification for Monthly Reporting Households, was inadvertently not modified as a result of this change. Please follow the pen-and-ink instructions below to revise this section.
Instructions: On page 9-5 dated 5-00, make the following two corrections:
- 9211.2 (1)(a) - After "income", remove "monthly dependent care payments (also refer to Policy Memo 99-10-11),".
The item should read, "For cash and food stamps - verification of gross income and all questionable information;".
- 9211.2 (2)(a) - Delete the entire second sentence that reads "Also, if the household reporting a dependent care payment does not provide verification of that expense, the agency shall not allow a dependent care deduction. If a portion of the expense is verified, that amount shall be allowed."
The item should read " For cash and food stamps, if verification of all earned income is not provided, the Monthly Report From shall be considered incomplete, refer to 9212."
The on-line version of the May manual material has already been modified to reflect this change.
