10A NCAC 71u .0205       IMMEDIATE TERMINATION OR REDUCTION OF ASSISTANCE

Households subject to immediate termination or reduction of benefits, and exempt from the federal notice of adverse action, as found at 7 C.F.R. 273.13(b), will have their benefits terminated or reduced following notice as specified in federal regulations.  For mass changes, as found in 7 C.F.R. 273.13(b)(1) such notice will be provided a minimum of 10 working days in advance when federal implementing time standards permit.  If a hearing is requested, benefits will be continued at the present level pending the hearing decision only if the termination or reduction is due to a mass change and the issue being contested is that food stamp eligibility or benefits were improperly computed or that federal law is being misapplied or misinterpreted, as found at 7 C.F.R. 273.15(k)(l).
