You Can Use the Prescreen Calculator to Assess Income if Participant Not Currently Certified
The Add Income Screening Contact button is disabled in the Income History tab in the Participant Folder if the participant is not in a current cert. If you need to assess a participant's income and they aren't in a current cert, you can use the Income Calculator in Prescreen.
You don't have to enter any other information into Prescreen to open it. Simply enter the income information (you will be required to select a Proof of Income) and enter the Household Size. Click the OK button to prompt the system to assess income eligibility. Click OK on the eligibility/ineligibility message(s) and then click Cancel to exit the Prescreen.

The Cert End Date for All VOCs Should Be the Last Date of the Month in Which the Cert Ends
Description: The Cert End Date should be the last date of the month in which a participant's certification ends when performing VOC transfers.
Explanation: All certification end dates are calculated by HuBERT as the last date of the month in which a certification ends. If a participant comes from a state that ends their certification based on the actual date the participant was certified, you should round up to the last date of that month and enter that as the Cert End Date for all WIC Types.
- Cert End Date on VOC = 2/07/2012
- Cert End Date for MN WIC = 2/29/2012 (Note: February 2012 is a Leap Year.)
What You Should Do: If you are performing a VOC certification, you must enter the last date of the month in which the cert ends as the Cert End Date.
