§ 501.10. Monthly reporting.

 (a)  Participants required to monthly report—7 CFR 273.21(b). Households with earned income are required to submit monthly reporting forms, except as modified in subsection (b).

 (b)  Participants excluded from the monthly reporting requirements—7 CFR 273.21(b). In addition to the exemptions listed in 7 CFR 273.21(b) (relating to Monthly Reporting and Retrospective Budgeting (MRRB)), the following households are excluded from monthly reporting requirements:

   (1)  Food stamp only households whose sole earned income is from self-employment.

   (2)  Food stamp only households whose sole earned income is received from employment as a sheltered workshop participant.

   (3)  Food Stamp only households and combination cash/Food Stamp households whose sole earned income is excluded as countable income under Federal laws or regulations.

 (c)  Suspension of benefits due to temporary ineligibility—7 CFR 273.21(n). Program benefits are suspended if the information provided on the monthly reporting form or late/incomplete notice indicates ineligibility which is expected to last for 1 month only. If the participant does not comply with the monthly reporting requirements during the month of suspension, the benefits are terminated.

 (d)  Reinstating benefits due to a delayed monthly reporting form—7 CFR 273.21(k)(2)(ii). If a household which has been suspended for failure to file a complete monthly report files a complete report after its extended filing date, but before the end of the issuance month, the CAO will reinstate the household by providing it with an opportunity to participate.
