Additionally, officials add that interim reports for public assistance will resume in July. If interim reports are not completed by the household, benefits could close. For those who applied for assistance without providing a Social Security number due to the SSN offices closing, a waiver was provided to the client up to five months to get the SSN verification to the caseworker. The client is still responsible for that verification within the time frame or the benefits can be closed, officials added.
