#12-28-ELI: Processing the Statewide Clearance Match In POS
Each state agency is required to establish a system to ensure that no individual participates more than once in a month, in more than one district, or in more than one household within the state in a TANF or SNAP program. To this end, the Statewide Clearance system was developed as a way to prevent duplication of benefits and to detect fraud. This system will match individuals based on Name, SSN, and Date of Birth. The demographics are compared with other New York State (NYS) Social Services Districts (SSD) to determine if the applicant or participant is known to the upstate district and is/was in receipt of Cash Assistance (CA), Medicaid (MA), or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits.
