Abstract:
Abstract: The objective of this research is to estimate the effects on food stamp overpayment (i.e. ineligibility and overissuance) of two kinds of corrective actions: more frequent recertification and monthly reporting. This report focuses on the overpayment case error rate -- the percentage of active cases with overpayment errors -- and examines this error rate nationally as an outcome of three separate administrative activities: initial certification, recertification, and interim maintenance. These findings are preliminary and intended to foster further discussion and analysis.
