                         STATEMENT OF JURISDICTION


Subiect Matter Jurisdiction

          Jurisdiction   was     conferred on the district court by 28

U.S.C. §§1331, 1343(a)(3) & (4).            Declaratory relief was authorized

by 28 U.S.C. $x2201, 2202 and Rule 57 of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure.     The action was brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. S1983,

alleging that defendants had violated plaintiffs rights under the
United States Constitution and the Social Security Act by recouping

amounts from plaintiffs' retroactive SSI awards.
Apoellate Jurisdiction
          This is an appeal from a final judgment that disposes of all

claims with respect to the parties.                This court has jurisdiction

pursuant to 28 U.S.C. s1291.              The district court entered an order

on June 7, 1994 granting defendants' motion for summary judgment

and denying plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment.                        Notice of

appeal was timely filed in the district court on June 29, 1994,

pursuant to F.R.A.P. 4(a)(l).

                STATEMENT OF ISSUES PRESENTED FOR REVIEW

1.   Whether state assistance paid to a participant in a work

program     (GA-WEAT)    while      a     disability   application        is   pending

represents interim assistance under the Social Security Act, 42

U.S.C.    §1383(g)(3),     and      may    be   recouped   from    a     participant's

retroactive SSI award.

2.   Whether    recovery       of    GA-WEAT     assistance       from    appellants'

retroactive SSI benefits violated appellants' rights under state

                                            1
and federal contract law.

3.     Whether recoupment of GA-WEAT assistance from retroactive SSI
benefits      was   void    for    failure    to     comply     with     the    Utah

Administrative Rule Making Act.
4.     Whether services performed under the EWP and GA-WEAT programs

must be compensated at minimum wage under the Fair Labor Standards

Act.



                             STATEMFNT OF THE CASE
Nature of the Case, Course of Proceedinas, and Disposition

          Michael Johns received assistance under the Emergency Work

Program (EWP) during the time when his application for disability

benefits under the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program .was

pending.      Aplt. App., at 7,8 & 24,25.          When he was found disabled

and awarded retroactive SSI, the EWP benefits he had worked for
were withheld as interim assistance.            Aplt. App., at 31.             Robert

Witbeck, who was also required to participate in EWP while his SSI
disability application was pending, died prior to agreement on a

partial settlement.        His survivors have received the amount owing

to him under the partial settlement described below.                   John Davies

received financial assistance under the GA-WRAT program and was

required to work 96 hours per month in order to qualify. Aplt.

APP.,    at    11,27.      After   being     determined       eligible    for     SSI
disability,     appellees withheld as interim assistance, all of the

CA-WHAT benefits paid to Davies.           Aplt. App., at 32.
          Johns and Davies brought suit claiming the amounts they


                                       2
received under the two work programs were not interim assistance,

because they had worked to earn the benefits.                They maintained the

recoupment of benefits from their retroactive SSI awards violated

the Social Security Act as well as other rights protected by state
and federal law.          Aplt. App., at 1.        They further alleged they

should have been compensated at minimum wage under the Fair Labor
Standards Act (FLSA).

          The parties reached a partial settlement, agreeing to class
certification,      the    return   of   all     benefits    recouped   from   EWP

participants and reimbursement of the WEAT allowance. Aplt. App.,
at 33.    The parties submitted the remaining questions regarding the

GA-WEAT program and the minimum wage issue to the court on cross
motions    for   summary     judgment.        The court ruled in favor' of

appellees on all issues submitted.
Statement of Facts

     At issue in this appeal are two programs funded by the State
of Utah: General Assistance (GA) and the Emergency Work Program

(EWP)?     The GA program began as a form of assistance for persons
who were "unemployable" or who were "marginally employable." Utah-

DHS-OFS    Volume   II    (hereinafter       "Vol.11")   S   810,812.31&.32.   EWP

began in 1983 as an emergency work program to benefit employable

individuals and required a minimum of 32 hours of work per week.

In addition to 32 hours of work per week, the EWP participant was

required to devote 8 hours each week to job search, adult education


     'The state of Utah policies and procedures pertaining to the
GA and WEAT programs are reproduced in the Addendum, as they
appeared at the time this case arose.

                                         3
or skill training.         Vol. II S808.27.

         At the time Davies applied for assistance, "unemployable"

was defined in state policy as follows:

       The impairment must be so severe that
       the person cannot do his previous work.
       In addition, he could not reasonably hope
       to find any other kind of "substantial work"
       considering his age, education, and work
       experience.   "Substantial work" is work
       which pays $500 or more a month.
Vol.    II S812.31.         A     client    whose    medical      report    established

inability to work for 30 days or more or whose "marked limitations"
evidence no reasonable hope of finding any other work is to be
determined "unemployable." Vol. II S812.31.

       A G A     recipient         deemed        capable     of    benefiting         from

rehabilitation       or    a    work   requirement          can   be       required    to

participate in a self-sufficiency program. Vol. II S812.6. Among

the self-sufficiency requirements available is a program known as

the Work Experience and Training program (WEAT).                       Based upon an

assessment by a self-sufficiency worker at the local office, using

medical evidence produced by the applicant, some GA applicants are
required to participate in a WEAT project while others are not.

Those GA recipients who refuse without good cause to participate in

self-sufficiency,         including a WEAT project, can be terminated from

the program.     Vol. II S812.6.           A terminated GA-WEAT participant who

is     reinstated    cannot        receive       benefits     until    24    hours      of

satisfactory participation have been completed. Vol. II $812.6.

Incapacity     may   be    good    cause    for     not   participating     in   a WEAT

project. Vol. II S812.6.


                                             4
      Those        for     whom    WEAT     participation              is   mandatory         must

participate 96 hours per month. At the time this case arose, GA

participants        received       a     grant       of   $233.00       a     month    and,     if

participation in a WEAT project was required, an additional $45.00

work allowance.           All WEAT payments are made from state funds to GA

recipients before participation in the work project.

      The      state      of   Utah    participates        in     an    interim       assistance

agreement with the Social Security Administration (SSA).                                    Under

this agreement, SSA reimburses the state for "interim assistance"
provided to SSI disability applicants while their applications are
pending.       The state defines interim assistance as:

      General Assistance grants payments made to a client to
      meet basic needs while awaiting a final decision on SSI
      disability.

Vol. II S812.52.

      GA applicants who have applied, or do apply, for SSI must
complete       a   Form    75,    "Agreement         to   Repay     Interim      Assistance,"
whereby they agree to reimburse the state                       for any assistance paid
to   them      during     the     time    their      eligibility        for    SSI     is   being
determined.         The state instructs its caseworkers concerning the

Form 75:

      The client must understand the following about
      the Form 75:

      a)
           General Assistance is an interim assistance
           l


      pending approval for SSI. Failure to apply for
      SSI will cause the GA to be discontinued.

Vol. II S812.53 2.             The state's GA policies in effect at the time

this case arose directed caseworkers to obtain a Form 75.


                                                 5
        Michael Johns applied for financial assistance at the Brigham

City Office of Family Support on September 14, 1990.               Aplt. App.,

at 42-47.     At that time Johns suffered from schizophrenia, anemia

and chronic pain.     Aplt. App., at 11, 27, 48.          Johns was determined

eligible for participation in EWP and was sent to Job Service for
assignment to a work project.        Aplt. App., at 49.         Johns signed an

EWP Agreement on September 14, 1990.            Aplt. App., at 50.      Johns'

caseworker referred him to the Brigham City Corporation to begin

work on September 15, 1990.        Aplt. App., at 49.        On September 17,

1990,    Johns   signed   and   acknowledged    receipt    of   Emergency   Work

Program Worker Guidelines. Aplt. App., at 51.              Johns participated

in EWP until January 12, 1991, when a hernia injury forced him to

quit working. Aplt. App., at 52. In February 1991, Johns began
receiving GA-Marginally Employable benefits.               Aplt. App., at 52.

Johns was permitted to receive GA benefits, but was not required to
particioate in a WEAT project.        On March 5, 1991, he signed a Form

75, Agreement to Repay Interim Assistance.           Aplt. App., at 53.

        AS a requirement for participation in EWP, Johns completed:
             (a) A series of EWP time cards covering
             September 17, 1990 through January 4, 1991
             Aplt. App., at 54-61;and

             (b) EWP weekly search records. Aplt. App., at 62-70.

        During his participation in EWP, Johns performed 413 hours of

community work at Brigham City             Corporation,    in addition to job

search and time excused for illness.              For his EWP performance,

Johns was paid $1,124.00 in EWP benefits. Defendants' Answers to

        Johns first injured himself on October 15, 1990, when he fell

from a ladder while working for Brigham City Corporation, while

performing painting duties.            He later suffered a hiatal hernia.

Aplt. App., at 71-72.         On October 29, 1990, Johns applied for SSI

disability benefits but was continued in the EWP program.                    On May

12,   1991, Johns was advised by SSA that he had been approved for

SSI benefits. Aplt. App., at 73-75.            A portion of his retroactive

SSI award was withheld by the state of Utah as reimbursement for

amounts paid under EWP.         Aplt. App., at 76-78.

        John Davies suffers from a major depression disorder, alcohol
dependence,    adjustment      disorder,      dependent      personality,    hiatal
hernia, gastrointestinal problems and arthritis.                  Aplt. App., at

11, 27.     He applied for SSI disability on February 26, 1990. Aplt.

APP.,    at 11, 27.      Davies signed a Form 75, Agreement to                Repay
Interim    Assistance,    on   March    11,   1991,    in    connection     with   an
unsuccessful application for CA-Unemployable benefits. Aplt. App.,
at 79, 80-90.        On July 22, 1991, he applied again for GA and was

approved    September    9,    1991,   subject to      the    condition     that   he

participate     in    self-sufficiency.       -Aplt.   APP.,- at     91-104.       On

September 6,    1991, he completed a CA-Self-Sufficiency Resume and

signed a GA Self-Sufficiency Plan wherein he agreed to "work 96

hours on the WEAT program," continue with mental health treatment

and follow through on his SSI appeal.             Aplt. App., at 105-06. On

September 10, 1991, he signed an Employment Plan whereby he agreed,
among other things, to "fulfill my WEAT assignment as if it were

actual employment."       Aplt. App., at 107.          On the same day, Davies


                                         7
signed a WEAT Agreement and agreed, in part:

        I must work on a WEAT Program to be
        eligible for general assistance. If I do
        not work satisfactorily, my financial
        case will be closed.  I will not be
        eligible for financial assistance for
        two months. To have my case re-opened at
        the end of the sanction period, I
        must reapply at the Social Services
        Office.  I may be required to accept a
        new WEAT assignment. Aplt. App., at 108.

On October 10, 1991, Davies began his WEAT assignment with Weber

County Division of Aging where he drove a bus transporting senior
citizens.        Aplt. App., at 109.           During his participation on CA-

WEAT, Davies worked a total of 750 hours and received $2,765.00 in
GA benefits and WEAT allowances.               Aplt. App., at 110-117.    Davies

was determined eligible for SSI disability on April 17, 1992. From
his retroactive SSI check, the state of Utah withheld $2,765.00 as

reimbursement for GA-WEAT benefits paid.                Aplt. App., at 118-19.

A.      Treatment of GA-WEAT Benefits as Interim Assistance Violates
        the Social Securitv Act
        1.    Standard of Review

               The court reviews the granting of a motion for summary

judgment       in   the   same   manner   as    the   district   court.   Summary

judgment is appropriate only where there are no genuine issues of

fact and one party is entitled to judgment as a matter of law.
Allen v. Denver Public School Bd., 928 F.2d 978, 983 (10th Cir.

1991)        This issue was raised at page 24 of Plaintiffs' Memorandum

in Support of Motion for Summary Judgment and was ruled on in the

district court's order, entered June 7, 1994, granting defendants'


                                           8
motion for summary judgment.

       The Social Security Act prohibits the attachment of disability

benefits from a beneficiary by any legal means unless authorized by
law:

       (a) The right of any person to any future payment under
       this subchapter shall not be transferable or assignable,
       at law or in equity, and none of the moneys paid or
       payable or rights existing under this subchapter shall be
       subject to execution, levy, attachment, garnishment, or
       other legal process, or to the operation of any
       bankruptcy or insolvency law.

42 U.S.C. §407(a).        The same prohibition was carried over to the

SSI disability program when it was adopted in 1972. 42 U.S.C.

§1383(d).     Applying section 407(a), the Supreme Court upheld a
decision    barring     the    New   Jersey   welfare    agency    from    reaching

federal    disability    benefits.      Philoott v.      Essex    Countv   Welfare

Board, 409 U.S. 413(1973).

       The SSI program came into existence October 30, 1972, "[f]or
the    purpose     of   establishing     a    national    program    to    provide

Supplemental Security Income to individuals who have attained age
65 or are blind or disabled. . ." 42 U.S.C. S 1381. Because of the

long wait involved in obtaining an SSI disability determination,

many states began providing state assistance to unemployables under
general    assistance     programs.      In    an   effort   to   encourage    such

support, Congress amended the Social Security Act to provide for

reimbursement of such state assistance out of a successful SSI

disability       applicant's    retroactive     benefits.         Thus,    Congress

created the interim assistance program ("IAP"), 42 U.S.C. §1383(g)

et. seq., whereby a state could be reimbursed for interim payments,


                                         9
provided certain qualifications were met:

      (a)   The state enters into a reimbursement agreement with
            the Secretary of Health and Human Services
            (hereinafter "the Secretary"); and

      (b)   The Secretary receives written authorization from the SSI
            applicant which allows the Secretary to withhold benefits
            due to the SSI recipient and pay to the state an amount
            sufficient to reimburse it for interim assistance
            provided to that individual.

42 U.S.C. §1383(g);       20 C.F.R. $$ 416.525 and 416.1901 et. sea.

Congress defined "interim assistance" as follows:

      (3) For purposes of this subsection, the term "interim
      assistance"   with respect to any individual means
      assistance financed from State or local funds and
      furnished for meeting basic needs (A) during the period,
      beginning with the month in which the individual filed an
      application for benefits (as defined in paragraph (2)),
      for which he 'was eligible for such benefits, or (B)
      during the period beginning with the first month for
      which the individual's benefits (as defined in paragraph
      (2)) have been terminated or suspended if the individual
      was subsequently found to have been eligible for such
      benefits.

      The primary issue presented to the court is one of statutory
interpretation.       When it created the IAP in 1972, Congress did‘not
address whether interim assistance included state assistance paid
participants     in    "workfare"      programs      such     as    GA-WEAT.         Davies

asserts that GA benefits received from working 96 hours per month

are   essentially      different       from    GA   benefits       received    for    doing

nothing.     Had      Davies    been    placed      on   CA-Unemployable,        or     CA-

Marginally Employable as Johns was in January 1991, and not been

required    to   work,    his    GA     benefits      would    have     been    properly
classifiable as interim assistance.                 The state takes the position

that GA-WEAT benefits are the same as CA-Unemployable benefits, and

that the work performed is irrelevant.                   It bases     this conclusion

                                              10
on its own interpretation of the federal statute, since the federal

regulations   promulgated   by   the    Secretary   of   Health   and   Human

Services provide little guidance. ' The state has the burden of

showing that its interpretation is consistent with the intent of
Congress.

      The approach to be taken in determining whether a statute has

been correctly applied is well-stated in Chevron U.S.A. v. Natural
Resources Defense Council, 467 U. S. 837,842-43(1984):

     When a court reviews an agency's construction of the
     statute which it administers, it is confronted with two
     questions.    First, always, is the question whether
     Congress has directly spoken to the precise question at
     issue.   If the intent of Congress is clear, that is the
     end of the matter; for the court, as well as the agency,
     must give effect to the unambiguously expressed intent of
     Congress, If, however, the court determines Congress has
     not directly addressed the precise question atissue, the
     court does not simply impose its own construction on the
     statute, as would be necessary in the absence of an


     'The Secretary defines interim assistance in the regulations
as follows:
     Interim assistance means assistance the State uives you,
     including payments made on your behalf to providers of
     goods or services, to meet your basic needs, beginning
     with the day of the month you apply for SSI benefits and
     are eligible for them, and ending with, and including,
     the month your SSI benefit payments begin, or assistance
     the State gives you beginning with the day for which your
     eligibility for SSI benefits is reinstated after a period
     of suspension or termination and ending with, and
     including, the month the Secretary make the first payment
     of benefits following the suspension or termination if it
     is determined subsequently that you were eligible for
     benefits during that period.       It does not include
     assistance the State uives to or for any other person.
     If the State has prepared and cannot stop delivery of its
     last assistance payment to you when it receives your SSI
     benefits payment is included as interim assistance to be
     reimbursed.     Interim assistance does not include
     assistance payments financed wholly or partly with
     Federal funds.   (emphasis added).

                                       11
                                                                                          I


        administrative interpretation. Rather, if the statute is
        silent or ambiguous with respect to the specific issue,
        the question for the court is whether the agency's answer
        is based on a permissible construction of the statute.



        Absent ambiguity or irrational result, the literal language of

the statute controls.               Edwards v. Valdez, 789 F. 2d 1477, 1481

(10th Cir. 1986).             In this case consideration of the legislative

history     is       appropriate,      since it is not clear from the plain
language        of    the    statute    whether    the   definition      of    "interim

assistance" encompasses workfare benefits.

        The court's focus must be on "the intent of Congress" at the

time the legislation was enacted.                Merrill Lvnch, Pierce, Fenner &

Smith v. Curran, 456 U.S. 353,377-78 (1982). It is a "fundamental
canon" that "unless otherwise defined, words will be interpreted as

taking their ordinary, contemporary, common meaning."                     Brescral v.
Brock.    843 F.2d          1163 (9th Cir. 1987),        citina   Perrin v. United
States, 444 U.S. 37, 42 (1979).

        Since it is not the federal agency charged with responsibility

for implementing the interim assistance language of the statute,

the     state    of    Utah's   interpretation      is   entitled   to    no   special
deference.           Aulston v. U.S., 915 F.2d 584,596 (10th Cir. 1990);
Dept.    of Treasurv v. FLRA,            837 F.2d 1163 (D.C. Cir. 1988). The
court must, therefore, use the tools for statutory interpretation

available to it and decide whether the GA-WEAT benefits furnished

to John Davies,             on condition of work performance,            are    interim

assistance.

        The language of the statute does not conclusively determine

                                            12
whether Congress intended interim assistance to include workfare.

Their is no dispute that the GA-WEAT benefits Davies received came

from    "State or local funds."             The       dispute      centers     on   whether

"furnished for meeting basic needs" encompasses workfare. At first

blush it would appear to do so, since the GA check did help to meet

Davies'      basic needs.       However,    the more difficult question is

whether      "furnished"     implies a gift,           in which case it would not

include benefits that had to be worked for, or does it mean simply
the    act     of   transmitting    something         to    another.          Black's     Law

Dictionary defines "furnish" as "to supply or provide...to give or
afford..."      but also notes that it means "[t]o deliver, whether

gratuitously or otherwise."

       The federal regulation implementing IAP contains the Secretary
of Health and Human Services' definition of interim assistance and

uses the word "gives" three times, e.g.: "Interim assistance means
assistance the State gives you...: As to accepted definitions of
"give",      Black's Law Dictionary offers:                "To transfer ownership or

possession      without    compensation..."           and "To bestow upon another

gratuitously or without consideration..." Both meanings would rule

out    workfare.     Given    the   Secretary's         familiarity       with      the   SSI

program and its interrelationship with state-funded programs, the

choice    of    a   word   commonly   understood            in    the   law    to   mean   a

gratuitous transfer supports Davies' position.                          The choice of an

operative word that would have included workfare                          benefits could

have   been     added   quite    easily,        had    that      been   the    Secretary's

understanding of congressional intent.


                                           13
       A consideration of the ordinary, contemporary meaning of the

words used also supports Davies' position.                  It is unlikely that the

contemporary meaning of "assistance" when the 1A.P was conceived
included GA-WEAT       benefits,      since workfare         programs are of more

recent vintage.        There is no evidence in the legislative history

that   Congress      had   workfare     in    mind   when    it   defined     the   term

"interim assistance."          Congress was legislating in a disability

context where the concept of putatively disabled individuals being
required to work likely would not have been raised.
       The Congressional Record report of the debate in the Senate

contains nothing to suggest that the inclusion of workfare in the

definition was ever considered.              In fact, the consistent references

are to disabled individuals, not to working persons.                       Senator Long

refers to states providing            "interim payments to meet the basic

needs of aged, blind and disabled persons until their SSI checks
start coming..." and again to "interim payments it may have made to

him in lieu of SSI benefits for which he was eligible but which had
not    Yet    been     processed."       Senator      Taft        echoes     the    same

understanding,        referring    to        the   state-funded       assistance      as

"emergency assistance" provided the aged, blind and disabled.

He describes the absence of "a viable emergency assistance program"

as "a tragic shortcoming of the new SSI program."

       Senator Long's description of interim assistance as a payment

"in lieu of SSI benefits" is instructive.                   SSI benefits are given

to aged,     blind and disabled individuals; they are not paid to

persons who work. Indeed, the notion of working is inconsistent


                                             14
with disability.        "Emergency assistance" implies an individual in

crisis,     not    an   able-bodied        worker.        Thus,    when    the     word

"assistance" is looked at in its contemporary context at the time

the IAP legislation was considered, and not when the state of Utah

interpreted the statute, the conclusion follows that Congress did

not intend to include workfare in its definition.

      Equitable considerations also support Davies' position that
his GA-WEAT benefits should not be treated as interim assistance,
because they were earned, not bestowed on him gratuitously. In

Walker v. Shanq, 412 N.Y.S. 2d 629 (S.Ct., App. Div. 2d Dep. 1979),

the court held that home relief benefits, for which the recipient
was   required     to   participate      in     a   public    works   project,      were
"earned" and could be used to reduce a mortgage lien in the amount

of public assistance received that had been placed on his home by
the   state   agency.      The    court       noted    with   approval    legislative

history establishing "equitable considerations that a person who is

compelled     to    participate     in      PWP     should    to   some    degree     be

compensated for his labors vis-a-vis a person not so compelled..."

Id., at 636.
      The     court's    holding      in      Walker    v.    Shanq      avoided     the

unreasonable result of treating benefits received by a workfare

participant the same as traditional welfare.                   The avoidance of an

unreasonable or absurd result is one of the criteria identified by

the courts as appropriate in statutory interpretation.                       U.S.     v.

Turkette, 452 U.S. 576, 580 (1981); National Foods, Inc. v. Rubin,

936 F.2d 656, 660 (2nd Cir. 1991). When the statute is silent or


                                           15
ambiguous, "courts can proceed by assuming that Congress authorizes

them to prevent manifest injustice."               U.S. v. 1002.5 Acres of Land,

942 F.2d 733, 735 (10th Cir. 1991).                 Where the choice is between

two   equally      plausible     interpretations,         it    is   appropriate     to

consider    the    effect   on       the   parties    involved       and   choose   the

interpretation that avoids a patently unjust result.                       Esta Later

Charters, Inc. v. Iclnacio, 875 F.2d 234, 239 (9th Cir. 1989).

      The GA policies described above demonstrate that the state

places     great   importance        on    self-sufficiency,         especially     work
efforts.     The state recognizes that workfare is to be encouraged

over welfare.       The WEAT client's effort at a project site is just

as much work as the person working next to him who receives a
paycheck cut by the employer at the end of the pay period.                          In a

very real sense, the WEAT client has "earned" his GA-WFAT benefit,

because if he quits without good cause, he receives no assistance.

Even assuming arauendo that some accommodations may be made for

some GA-WEAT clients who engage in work at a WEAT project site,
although there was none given to either Johns or Davies, it is

undeniable that the WEAT participant is doing something more than

the CA-Unemployable recipient.

      If more is required of the GA-WEAT participant who works than

of the CA-Unemployable recipient who does nothing, then it is

unreasonable to treat them the same for purposes of recovering

interim     assistance.        The    court      should   not   accept     the   state's

interpretation of the federal statute, when it produces such an

unreasonable result.           An equally plausible interpretation of the


                                            16
statute       is    that    it   was       intended      to    apply     to    assistance        given

persons       who    were     "incapacitated,"            "unemployable"         or    "marginally

employable" as Johns was in early 1991, not to assistance that was,

in effect, earned by laboring at a WEAT project, as Davies did for

eight months.          To hold otherwise works an injustice on all GA-WRAT

participants who are told that working is better than doing little
or nothing.

        The     interpretation urged               by     appellants      does       not   create    a

windfall for GA-WRAT participants, nor does it amount to "double-

dipping"        as     appellees       successfully             argued    below.           The     SSI

regulations take into consideration the receipt of income, either

earned or unearned;by an SSI recipient.                           20 C.F.R. SS 416.1100 et.

seq. See Addendum.                Had Johns worked as a regular employee for

Weber    County       Division        of    Aging       while    his     SSI   application         was
pending,        or     been      given      a     monthly       allotment       by     a   generous

benefactor,          or even free food and shelter, the SSI regulations
required       that    his retroactive award be reduced to reflect the

"income" received.               20 C.F.R. S 416.1104.                 What Davies received

fits several categories of income under the SSI regulations.

        The SSI regulations define earned income as including: (a)

wages,        (b)    net    earnings        from    self-employment,            (c)    refunds      of

Federal income taxes and (d) payments for services performed in a

sheltered           workshop     or    work       activities       center.            20   C.F.R.    S

416.1110.           What Davies received may be classified as wages under

the definition of that term in $404.429(c). Alternatively, Davies'

GA-WEAT        benefits       readily       fit     the       description      of     payment      for


                                                   17
services in a sheltered work setting:

     Payments for services performed in
     a sheltered workshop or work activities
     center are what you receive for
     participating in a Procram desiuned
     to help you become self-supporting.
     (emphasis added).

20 C.F.R.     §416.1110(d).          There is no dispute that GA-WEAT is

designed to help persons become self-supporting and that Davies

performed     services.           Thus,    the     payments      he    received    may   be

classified as earned income which would reduce his SSI benefit
amount,     after   allowable       deductions       are    subtracted.          20 C.F.R.

S416.1112.

     Alternatively, what Davies received as GA-WRAT benefits may be
treated as unearned income.               If, as appellees argue, Davies did not

earn his benefits, then they must have been a unique gift.                               For

income purposes, the SSI regulations define a gift as "something
you receive which is not repayment to you for goods or services you

provided    and     which    is    not     given    to     you   because    of    a   legal

obligation on the giver's part."                  20 C.F.R. §416.1121(g).

     Whether treated as earned or unearned income, the point is

made: the SSI regulations preclude a windfall.                        The successful SSI

disability applicant is required to report all income and the

retroactive award is reduced accordingly.                        The same applies to

Davies and the class he represents: if successful on appeal, they

are obliged to report the GA-WEAT benefits as income and have their

retroactive    awards       recalculated.           The requirements of the SSI

regulations       are   then      satisfied        and     appellees'      objection      is

nullified.

B.    Recoupment of GA-WEAT Benefits from Retroactive SSI Violates
      State and Federal Contract Law

      1.    Standard of Review

      The same standard of review applies as stated, supra, prior to

discussion of the first issue.          This issue was raised at page 50 of

Plaintiffs' Memorandum in Support of Motion for Summary Judgment

and was ruled on in the district court's order, entered June 7,

1994, granting defendants' motion for summary judgment.

      The interim assistance agreement (Form 75) signed by Davies is
treated as a common law assignment , giving rise to contract rights

under state and federal law.           In Re Vazuuez, Guerrero and Compton,
788 F.2d 130, 134 (3rd Cir. 1986).            Ambiguities in an agreement are
to   be    resolved   against    the    party    who     drafted   the   document.

Helitzer v. Helitzer, 761 F.2d 582, 589 (10th Cir. 1985).                   When a
contract is on a printed form prepared by one party, and adhered to
by another who has little or no bargaining power, ambiguities must
be   construed   against   the    drafting      party.      Corso v.     Creiuhton
University, 731 F.2d 529, 533 (8th Cir. 1984).                 Under the common
law, a contract lacking essential terms is void for uncertainty.

Respect Inc. v. Committee on the Status of Women, 781F.Supp. 1358,

1364 (N.D. Ill.,E.D. 1992).
      The interim assistance agreement signed by Davies on March 11,
1991 bears the designation:

                                  Utah-DSS-FSA
                                  Form 75 7/89
There is no dispute that the document was prepared by the state of

Utah and, under the cited law, any ambiguity must be interpreted


                                         19
against the drafting party.              Moreover, Davies had no bargaining
power    when    he    signed   the   document      agreeing   to       assign       his    SSI

benefits.         He    was     suffering    from     a   combination           of    mental

impairments which prevented him from returning to any past work he

had preformed.         Davies' eventual qualification for SSI disability
covering the time when he signed the Form 75 confirms he was

mentally disabled at the time he signed away his rights.

        The Form 75 signed by Davies is ambiguous since it does not

define two key terms: "public assistance" and "interim assistance."

Under Utah law, to be enforceable, a contract must be definite as

to its terms.          Owvhee, Inc. v. Robbins Marco Polo, 407 P.2d 565,
567 (Ut. 1965).         Davies signed the Form 75 in March 1991 when he
was considered for and denied GA-Unemployable benefits.                          Thus,' it
is unlikely that he knew when he signed the Form 75 that, six

months    later   when    he    was   given GA-WEAT       benefits,        he    would       be
required to work 96 hours per month, and that his benefits would be

treated the same as GA-Unemployable benefits for which no work is
required.       There is no evidence that anyone explained the meaning
of the terms at the time Davies signed the Form 75 in March 1991.

The form does not include a definition of "interim assistance";

therefore, Davies could not have known that the state of Utah's own

policies defined the term as "the GA financial payment made to a

client while his eligibility for SSI is pending." Vol. II S812.52.

      The term "public assistance" is equally ambiguous, since it

could be interpreted as meaning either GA-Unemployable, for which

no   work   is    required,      or   GA-WEAT,   which     has      a    specific          work


                                            20
requirement.           Without clear knowledge of the terms used by the
state,       Davies could not have made an intelligent and informed

decision in March 1991to assign his SSI benefits for GA-WEAT to be

received in October 1991 through May 1992.                            Had the terms been

defined       in     the     assignment,     he       might   have     chosen       to   forego

participation in GA-WEAT.                Absent a clear meeting of the minds on

March        11,     1991,     the   assignment          of    SSI     was    invalid         and

unenforceable.
C. Recoverv of GA-Weat from Appellants' Retroactive SSI Was Void
for Failure to Complv With the Utah Administrative Rule Makinu Act

        1.     Standard of Review

                   The same standard of review applies as was discussed,
suora, prior to the first issue.                     This issue was raised at page 46
of Plaintiffs' Memorandum in Support of Motion for Summary Judgment

and was ruled on in the district court's order, entered June 7,
1994, granting appellees' motion for summary judgment.

        Under Utah law a state agency must follow certain rulemaking

procedures before implementing an administrative rule.                              Utah Code
Ann. S63-46a-1 et. seq.               See Addend-um.          There is no dispute that
the rulemaking statute applies to defendants. Defendants deny that

they violated the Rulemaking Act when they began recovering GA-WEXT

benefits from retroactive SSI awards.

        The    Utah        Supreme   Court      has    held    that    the    rules      of    an

administrative agency are not valid unless the agency complies with

the rulemaking procedures prescribed in the Act.                                Williams v.

Public       Service       Commission,    720     P.2d   773,    775-77      (Ut.    1986).     A

proposed rule that has not been adopted in accordance with the

                                                21
provisions of the Utah Administrative Rulemaking Act is not valid

and enforceable.        Lane v. Board of Review, 727 P.2d 206, 208 (Ut.

1986).      Rulemaking is required whenever agency action affects a

general class of persons, rather than specific persons.                 Ellis v.

Utah State Retirement Board, 757 P.2d 882 (Ut. App. 1988).

       The state of Utah has never promulgated rules pertaining to

the    recovery    of   GA-WEAT     from   retroactive     SSI   benefits.     The

policies in effect at the time this case arose directed caseworkers
to obtain a Form 75 in cases wherein a GA recipient had applied for

SSI.     A fair reading of the rules at Vol. II SS812.5 et. seq. is

that they were intended to cover CA-Unemployable and CA-Marginally

Employable benefits but did not contemplate the case in which the
person was engaged in a GA-WEAT work project.                As appellants have

argued      throughout,   GA-WEAT    is    intrinsically    different   from   CA-
Unemployable where no work is expected.             The rules pertaining to

GA-WEAT contain no reference to recovery of such workfare benefits
from retroactive SSI, nor are caseworkers directed to obtain a Form
75.      Vol.   II S812.6.    Thus,       appellees have taken action which
affects a broad class of people--those disabled persons who are

required to pay back GA-WEAT benefits from their retroactive SSI
awards --without any specific authorization in state policy.                 Their

actions are improper under Utah law.             The amounts recovered from

appellants must be reimbursed to them.

D.     Services Performed Under EWP or a GA-WEAT Proiect Must Be
       Compensated at Minimum Waue

       1.    Standard of Review

       The same standard applies           as was discussed, suora, prior to

                                           22
consideration of the first issue.          The issue was raised at page 53

of Plaintiffs' Memorandum in Support of Motion for Summary Judgment

and ruled on in the district court's order, entered June 7, 1994,

granting appellees' motion for summary judgment.

     The hourly rate for the work performed by Johns and Davies

under the two work programs at issue was less than minimum wage.

The Fair Labor Standards Act was designed to prohibit employers
from obtaining the services of employees at less than minimum wage.

29 U.S.C. S9201 et. seq.            See Addendum.      Currently,    the    Act

requires payment at the rate of $4.25 an hour.          29 U.S.C. §206(a).

For FLSA purposes, "employer" is defined as including a public

agency such as the State of Utah Department of Human Services. 29
U.S.C. §203(d).

      The test of employment for FLSA purposes is one of "economic
reality."     Goldberu v. Whitaker House Cooperative, Inc., 366 U.S.

28, 33 (1961).      The Supreme Court has consistently construed the
FLSA "liberally to apply to the furthest reaches consistent with

congressional      direction..."      Mitchell   v.   Lublin,    McGauuhv      &

Associates,    358 U.S. 207, 211 (1959).       The statute has been found

to   apply    to   non-profit   organizations.        Tony   &   Susan     Alamo

Foundation v. Sec. of Labor, 471 U.S. 290 (1985).                 Whether     an

administrative agency is an employer for FLSA purposes is a legal

issue.   Bonnette v. California Health and Welfare Auencv, 704 F.2d

1465, 1469 (9th Cir. 1983).        The court is not limited by the common

law concept of "employer" and an expansive interpretation is in

order so as to effectuate the FLSA's broad remedial purposes. Id.


                                      23
Factors to be considered in determining the applicability of the

FLSA include whether the alleged employer:

        (1) had the power to hire and fire the
        employee;

        (2) supervised and controlled employee work
        schedules or conditions of employment;

        (3) determined the rate and method of payment; and
        (4) maintained employment records.

Bonnette v. California Health and Welfare, 704 F.2d at 1470.
        The   court    has        never    directly     addressed     whether   workfare

programs such as EWP and GA-WEAT are subject to the minimum wage

requirements of the FLSA.                 In Klaips v. Beruland, 715 F.2d 477, 481

(10th Cir. 1983),            the court opined that for food stamp purposes

prior to 1978, WEAT workers were not employees of the Utah State
Department of Social Services.                     However, Klaips was not reviewed

according to the more liberal "economic reality" test applicable
under the FLSA and should not be controlling in this case. An

analysis under the FLSA supports the conclusion that, like the
choreworkers in Bonnette, the Em/GA-WEAT workers in this case were

covered under the FLSA.

        A    review    of    the    facts     in     light    of   appellees'   policies

justifies the conclusion that appellants were entitled to a minimum

wage.       Appellees had the power to hire and fire, since termination

from the program is mandated for failure to complete the work

assignment.       Vol. II SS 808.27 & 812.6.                 Control and supervision of

the EWP and GA-WEAT workers is shared between appellees and the

employer       where        the    worker     is     assigned.       This   sharing   of


                                               24
responsibility does not remove appellees from FLSA coverage, since

two or more employers may jointly employ someone for purposes of

the FLSA.     Falk v. Brennon, 414 U.S. 190, 195 (1973). Defendants

determined the rate and method of payment, since they set the

monthly benefit check which in some cases could vary in amount,

depending on the amount of work performed.                    Finally,     appellees

maintained employment records, including:

         (1) a GA Self-Sufficiency Resume;

         (2) a GA Self-Sufficiency Plan;

         (3) an Employment Plan;

         (4) a WEAT Agreement;
         (5) a Work Experience and Training Project
             Assignment form;

         (6) a form entitled, "Information Exchange
             Self-Sufficiency/Assistance Teams/Job Service; and

         (7) an Individual Participant WEAT Time
             Sheet.
These     forms,    though    prepared    and     used   by   a   public     agency,
facilitated actual work in the local economy just as surely as work
records prepared by a private employer.                  All of the indicia are

present for a finding that FLSA coverage applies and the court

should rule accordingly.

                                 CONCLUSION
         The court should reverse the decision of the district court

granting defendants' motion for summary judgment.                  It should rule

as   a    matter   of   law   that   appellees'    interpretation    of     "interim

assistance" conflicts with the Social Security Act and the recovery

of Davies' SSI for GA-WEAT benefits violated the Act.                      It should

                                         25
further    rule   that   appellees    violated      appellants'   rights   under

contract    law    and    failed     to    comply    with   state     rulemaking

requirements.     Finally, it should rule that under the FLSA, EWP and

GA-WEAT participants are entitled to a minimum wage.                  The court

should remand the case to the district court for entry of an order

granting plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment.

Oral Aruument Requested

     Johns and Davies request oral argument, because many of the
issues presented in their appeal are unprecedented.                 They believe

oral argument will aid the court in resolving these issues and
benefit the class they represent.

          Defendants.          :

     This matter came before the Court for oral argument on the
22nd day of April, 1994 on cross motions for summary judgment.
Plaintiffs'   counsel,     Michael E.   Bulson and Thomas McWhorter,
appeared on behalf of Plaintiffs and Defendants' counsel, Tamara K.
Prince,   Assistant      Attorney General,   appearedon behalf of
Defendants.   Based upon the memoranda and oral arguments by Michael
E. Bulson and Tamara K. Prince and there being no material facts in
dispute, the Court concludes as a matter of law that:
     State funded General Assistance granted to General Assistance
Work Experience and Training (GA-WEAT) participants is interim
assistance under the federal statutes and regulations and therefore
recoverable from a participants' retroactive SSI award.    'GA-WEAT is
state-funded assistance based upon need.   The fact that it contains
a self-sufficiency component does not take it out of the plain
meaning of the federal Interim Assistance Reimbursement program
(IAR).   The IAR couches the authorization in terms of recovery of
interim assistance furnished on behalf of the individual by the
                                      h
state. The plain and statutory meaning of the word "furnish" can
clearly encompass assistance given under the terms of GA-WEAT.
     GA-WEAT is recoverable under state law and the Defendants did
not violate state rule making by recovering such assistance.
Furthermore, the contracts signed by the recipients allowing the
State to recover interim assistance from their retroactive ,531
awards are enforceable.
     Regarding Plaintiffs' equal protection claims, the State of
Utah's practice of recovering benefits paid to GA-WEAT participants
is rationally related to a legitimate state goal.         There is no
invidious   classification of    GA-WEAT participants or       others
similarly situated.    The State of Utah is not recovering the

                                 2

        retroactive SSI benefits because the Plaintiffs are disabled,
        rather the state is preventing receipt of duplicative assistance.
        Furthermore,   the federal statute authorizes recovery of state
        interim assistance.     To   allow the participant to receive interim
        assistance and SSI for the same time period would result in double
        assistance payments.
             Plaintiffs' due process arguments likewise fail.         Plaintiffs
        have failed to establish an entitlement to retaining interim
        assistance payments in addition to their retroactive SSI benefits.
             The Court further concludes that there is no employer/employee
        relationship between the Defendants and GA-WEAT and Emergency Work
        Program (EWP) participants under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
        Although participants participate in community work projecb and
        have required hours, those hours can be met by educational and job
        search activities as well as performance of community work. In
        addition, the public assistance is granted for days missed due to
                                              2-L -_-_ 2
        excused absences such as illness, job A-~L=L v rews,       problems with
        transportation and assignments are tailored to meet the physical
        and other needs of participants.         Applying the economic reality
        test, neither Plaintiffs nor others similarly situated are entitled
        to minimum wage for tasks performed pursuant to the GA-WEAT and EWP
        program requirements.        This conclusion is supported by Klaiw v.
        Beraland, 715 477 (10th Cir. 1983).         Furthermore,   public policy

        compels the conclusion that public assistance programs which
        include education,     job training, and actual work experience as
        required components do not create an employer/employee relationship
        between the state and program participants. Rather, they encourage
        self-sufficiency and aid recipients in finding work to provide for
        their health and well-being.      Therefore, it is
             HEREBY ORDERED that Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment is
        granted and the Plaintiffs' Motion for Summary Judgment is denied.

              800 SPECIAL STATE -PROGRAMS

              808 EMERGENCY WORK PROGRAM (EWP)

                  In return for participation in adult education, short term skill training,
                  community work and job search, the EWP provides financial assistance on a
                  short-term basis. The program contains very strict performance standards
                  to help ensure that households become self-supporting as soon as
                  possible. EWP is not a substitute for other emergency assistance programs.

                 Two parent families with dependent children or a pregnant spouse, women in
                 the first or second trimester of pregnancy, and single persons and
                 couples, are eligible anytime during the year. Participation is limited
                 to a maximum of 6 months in any 12 month period excluding the month of
                 application.   Extentions may be approved by the State Office if necessary
                 for employment. Also, enrollment may be limited and participation period
                 shortened at anytime based on program budget. A person eligible for
                 Bureau of Indian Affairs (8IA) General Assistance is not eligible for
                 G-EWP.

                 The rules in the other sections of the manual apply unless a different
                 rule is stated below.

                 808.1      General Reauirements

                            With two exceptions, the policies and procedures in Section 100
                            apply to the EWP.

                            The first exception is payments will not be continued or
                            reinstated when a participant in EWP requests a fair hearing.
                            If the fair hearing decision reverse: the action of the local
                            office, the local office will issue retro-active benefits in the
                            amount specified in the hearing decision.

                            The second exception is lo-day advance notice is not required
                            when EWP payments are reduced or terminated because the
                            participant has not participated during part or all of the
                            bi-weekly period. However, advance notice of other adverse
                            actions must be given.

                                                       for AFDC must apply for AFDC.   If the household is
                                                       eligible for AFDC, the household is ineligible for
                                                       EWP.  The two exceptions are:

                                        household receives the first payment.   Then enter the

                                        The first $90 provided each month under the EWP program is

                                        Treat the EWP payment as a public assistance grant (Volume

         808.67    EWP Special Needs

                   Work Expenses

                   Often a client has expenses that    limit a client's ability
                   to start or continue job search,    training, or community
                   work.   Examples of expenses are:   transportation, clothing,
                   uniforms, licenses, school fees.    You can pay for these
                   expenses if the reason and amount    of the request is
                   specified in writing by the JTPA    agency.

                   Medical   Assistance

                   EWP clients who have medical conditions not covered by UMAP
                   which prevent them from employment, maybe eligible for
                   special GASP funds. Medical treatment must remove the
                   condition preventing employment as determined by EWP/JTP
                   Coordinator.  Because of limited funding, approval is on a
                   case by case basis thru UMAP.

                   EWP cases will not need a regularly scheduled
                   redetermination.

                      employable", or a spouse of a qualifying recipient. Applicants and
                      recipients must participate in rehabilitation and employment services
                      and follow through on efforts to qualify for SSI. Less capable
                      clients will need special help from Human Service staff in applying
                      for SSI and participating in Self-Sufficiency activities.

                      The program is based on the concept of mutual responsibility. The
                      client has the responsibility to make efforts to overcome the
                      condition making him unemployable, to move towards self-sufficiency
                      and to qualify for SSI. Staff have the responsibility to assist
                      clients in becoming self-sufficient and in securing SSI. A goal, not
                      an eligibility condition, is to enable most participants to achieve
                      employment and/or SSI in six months.

                      A person eligible for Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) General
                      Assistance is not eligible for GASSP.

                                   The applicant must provide medical evidence that he is not
                                   employable due to a physical or mental impairment. If the
                                   medical statement does not provide medical evidence, offer
                                   to help the client obtain medical evidence. Medical
                                   records or specialized medical evaluations may provide
                                   medical evidence. The local office has the responsibility
                                   to pay for medical exams to provide evidence needed to
                                   determine eligibility. The exams must be prior approved by
                                   the local office. The client is responsible for securing
                                   medical records, contacting a specialist if needed, and
                                   scheduling evaluations.

                                   The impairment must be so severe that the person cannot do
                                   his previous work. In addition, he could not reasonably
                                   hope to find any other kind of "substantial work"
                                   considering his age, education, and work experience.
                                   "Substantial work" is- work which pays $500 or more a month.

                                   If the applicant states he has a medical problem and cannot
                                   work, either accept the medical/psychological evidence the
                                   client may have or give him Form 20 Pisabi 1 ity or Form 21

                          A spouse, excluding SSI recipients, may be included in the
                          GASSP grant if they meet unemployable criteria or actively
                          follow through on a Self Sufficiency Plan. This should
                          include active job search activities.

             812.4        Self-Sufficiencv

                     All GASSP applicants and their spouses, at time of application,

                     self-sufficiency worker and complete a self-sufficiency plan
                     unless exempted. If a recipient at review, has a
                     Self-Sufficiency plan, an interview by the Self-Sufficiency
                     worker is not required.  Recipients must actively follow through
                     on the plan.

                     A person may be exempted from these requirements by the worker
                     if:

                     1)   the person has qualified for SSI and is waiting for the

                     Document the reason in the case record on the case action log.

                     Inform applicants who have not been exempted that eligibility
                     can not be determined until a self-sufficiency plan is
                     developed.  Provide a copy of the medical records and other
                     relevant data to the GA self-sufficiency worker.

                     If a GA self-sufficiency worker is not available, a non-exempted
                     applicant must be referred to the Division of Rehabilitation

       A person prospectively.eligible for another financial assistance
       program with benefits at or above the standard grant level is
       ineligible for GASSP. AFDC rules apply unless a different rule is
       stated below.

        1.   Financial responsibility is limited to spouse for spouse. Count
             the income and assets of people with financial responsibility
             for a GASSP client in determining eligibility and grant amount
             if they are living with the client.

       2.    Grant amount.

             a.   The only people included in the grant are those who:
                       Live Together, AND
                       Have financial responsibility for one another

             b.   Count the SSI income of financially responsible househol d
                  members. A person receiving SSI is not eligible for GA.

             C.   The only earned income disregards are:
                       A work expense allowance of $90 for each eligible
                       individual employed.

             d.   Do m allow the 25% income disregard.

             e.   The household is eligible if the available Income is less
                  than the standard grant. The minimum grant shall not be
                  less than one dollar.

             Example #l:     A husband meets all GASSP eligibility
                             requirements. He and his wife live together.
                             She is employed part time.   Count her income in
                             determining the grant.  Include her in the grant
                             if she agrees to participate in self sufficiency
                             activities. The standard grant amount is for a
                             two person household.

             Example #2:     A husband, wife and 19 year old son live
                             together. The husband meets all GASSP
                             eligibility requirements and has no income. The
                             wife receives $175.00 SSI. The son is working
                             full time. Count the wife's income in
                             determining the grant amount. Do not count the
                             son's income.    Exclude the wife and son from the
                             household count.

             Example #3:     2 disabled persons live together. They are not
                             married. Each person is a separate GASSP case.

       3.    GASSP recipients are not subject to monthly reporting unless
             they are required to as part of meeting Food Stamps or Medica id
             standards or they are required by the local office to report
             monthly to handle fluctuating earned income.

           814      Assets

                    The assets of spouses are counted in determ i ning eligibility if they

             5      GASSP Medical Benefit

                    A person receiving General Assistance Self Suff i ciency (GASSP)
                    assistance is eligible for Utah Medical Assistance Program (MAP)
                    without completing a separate application.

                    General Assistance Self Sufficiency recipients receiving food stamps
                    may be issued up to $25 a month to cover the cost of transportation,
                    fees and other costs to participate in self sufficiency activities.

                    General Assistance self sufficiency (GASSP) funds have been allocated
                    to each region to use al ong with 2 funds to provide special needs in
                    order to participate in self sufficiency activities.

                    GASSP recipients who have medical conditions not covered by UMAP
                    which prevents them from gainful employment, may be eligible for
                    special GASSP funds. Medical treatment must remove the condition
                    that makes the person unemployable as determined by the Self
                    Sufficiency worker.

                    If requested by the GA Self Sufficiency counselor and approved by
                    UMAP and the state OFS office as part of the GASSP medical program,
                    UMAP-GASSP services may be extended up to six months after a person
                    leaves GASSP because of employment. This pol cy is to enable persons
                    with significant medical problems to maintain employment.
                    Participants are required to enroll in health insurance if offered by
                    the    empioyer.    '

                    Because of limited funding, approv al of GASSP medical services is on
                    a case by case basis.

           817      Reviews

                   If the recipient is actively invol ved in following through on
                   self-sufficiency activities, a review every 12 months may be
                   appropriate.  Otherwise, review the case at least every 6 months.
                   Each individual must have developed a self-sufficiency plan and be
                   following through on that plan unless exempted. If exempted, review
                   to see if the reason for the exemption still applies. Also, review

818 Self Sufficiency

    It is a goal of the Department to help AFDC clients become
    self-sufficient.   To reach this goal, you must refer all AFDC clients for
    a self-sufficiency interview. The only exceptions are disabled adults or
    children in school or pre-school.

    The program is not an eligibility factor.       You*cannot deny or hold the
    client’s benefits for this program.*

    ala.1       When to Refer a Client

                1.   When the client applies.

                2.   When a client is able to work after being ill or disabled.

                3.   When you find clients who have not yet been referred for an
                     interview.

                4.   When a client loses his job.

                5.   When a client asks to be referred.


   ala.2       Bow to Refer a Client

               Follow procedures for your district when you refer clients.
               Explain that the interview is not required. His assistance will
               not be denied or held for its completion.*

                Document your effort in the self-sufficiency program. Record it
                in the case file. Use the case action log, the Form 124, or any
                other form that will not be purged from the file.

   ala.3       Pot Clients Who Are Not Referred

                If you do not refer a client because he is disabled, explain
                this in the case action log.

               If you postpone the referral because the client is unable to
               work, explain this in the case action log. You will need to
               refer the client when he is again able to work;



   *       Some districts combine the WIN Appraisal and Self-Sufficiency
           intemievs. This makes Self-Sufficiency automatic for clients who
           are not exempt from WIN. Make sure these clients understand that
           they must meet the m reauirement to receive an AFDC grant.

               Often a self-sufficiency client has unexpected expenses that
               threaten his ability to start or continue job search activities
               or training. The self-sufficiency worker may issue special
               funds to help pay these expenses. The self-sufficiency
               supervisor must approve any issuance of these funds.

               Examples of expenses that can be paid are:

               1.   Transportation.
               2.   Clothing. *
               3.   Uniforms.
               4.   License and school fees.

               This money is not counted against the grant.

                  appropriate district office before issuing a replacement check.

                  If the individual has an open case on our data       system, the
                  case payee and mailing address are used for the      SSI $10
                  supplemental issuance. If the individual is not      on our data
                  system, the payee and mailing address from the       Social Security
                  file are used.

                  Lost or stolen checks are handled according to regular Volume
                  II Financial Assistance procedures.

          820.4   SSI Check but No State Sunnlemental

                  Occasionally the SDX or the local Social Security Office
                  reports a check issued, but the $10 supplement payroll does
                  not show a check issued. Report the problem to Management
                  Support Services.

          820.5   No Check Wanted .

                  If a recipient does not &ant to receive the $10 supplemental
                  check, the recipient or guardian should send a letter to
                  management support services requesting a hold on payments..
                  The social security number of the recipient must be included.

          820.6   Guardians

                  Sometimes the computer does not pick up the guardian’s name
                  from the SDX and the check is printed in the recipient’s name
                  only. Contact Management Support Services if this is creating
                  a problem for the recipient.

          820.7   Returned Check Procedures

                  When a State Supplemental check is returned to the district
                  o f f i c e , check the terminal by recipient name and SSA number to
                  determine if there is an open case with either OCO or DFS. If
                  there is an open case, check for a new address.

                  a.   If a new address cannot be found, hold the check until
                       the next month’s supplemental payroll to check for a new
                       address.

                  b.   If no new address is identified, hold the check for 60 .
<.&
l ,....
                       days from the date of issuance. After 60 days, void the
                       check and return to the Bureau of Finance.
