The Income Eligibility Verification System, or IEVS, is a federally mandated matching system consisting of a coordinated data exchange comprised of various electronic cross matches that match applicant/recipient name and Social Security Number (SSN) with various databases. There are two IEVS systems: one is for applicants who are applying for aid (IEVS Applicant System) which is administered by Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), and a second is for ongoing eligibility verification of current recipients (IEVS Recipient System) operated by California Department of Social Services (CDSS).This workshop provides an overview of the Income Eligibility Verification System (IEVS). It will also examine the Overpayment and Over Issuance processes and Fraud procedures. Participants will learn the processing requirements of IEVS, how they impact eligibility that may result in an overpayment, how to process that overpayment in accordance with the program rules, and when to refer that overpayment for potential fraud.

Topics Include:
  • Developing an understanding of the rules and regulations regarding IEVS
  • Examining how to process an Overpayment and Over Issuance
  • Understanding Fraud and when to refer a case for review
