Rolling clock (Calculating the "3-Month Grace Period)
The way the system will track the "3-month Grace Period" is by using the "Rolling Clock" method:
|a.||The Rolling Clock Period begins on the date the sanction would be imposed. The system will look back 12 months to see if the participant has received three months in that 12 month period.|
|b.||The Rolling Clock Period will identify if the participant has received aid as either an employable or unemployable for three months. The three months do not need to be consecutive.|
|c.||When a participant receives two months of the Grace Period they are still eligible for one more month|
A participant applied for GR on March 1, 2013, and had no prior acts of noncompliance within the last 12 months. On June 12, 2013, the participant committed an act of noncompliance.
- The Rolling Clock Period begins on June, 2013, the date the sanction would be imposed. The system will look back 12 months to determine if the participant has received aid for three months during the 12 month period and determine what type of action should occur.
- The participant has received aid on April, May, and June of 2013.
- June 2013 is month 3, Days 61-90. The noncompliance will be tracked and applied at the end of month 3.
- The system will initiate the noncompliance with a termination date of June 31, 2013.
