08-ADM-05: SSI - Screening/Identification, Referral and Tracking Requirements
In 1992, the New York State Department of Social Services released 92 ADM-29, which highlighted social services district (district) responsibilities resulting from Chapter 53 of the Laws of 1992. The main objective of that Chapter Law and the Administrative Directive ADM) mandating district procedures was cost containment. Moving eligible individuals from Temporary Assistance (TA) to SSI was a good cost containment strategy in 1992 and remains a good strategy today. This is especially true in light of stringent Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Safety Net Assistance (SNA) work participation requirements.
This directive replaces 92 ADM-29 to reflect changes relevant to the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA) and the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. This directive also provides additional information relating to SSI identification, referral and tracking requirements and resources, including information on the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance’s (OTDA) contract for consultative medical and psychological examinations and intelligence assessments.
