SUBJECT: Final WIA Eligibility
Attached is the final WIA Eligibility
Documentation Guide. This revision makes a number of changes based on
comments received and provides samples of various acceptable documentation
Additionally, we are providing the following
direction as it pertains to the documentation process:
What to Document
- The documentation of eligibility should take
place before an individual begins participation in a registerable WIA activity.
- All general eligibility items (social
security number, citizenship, selective service and age) must be documented for
all registered WIA participants.
These are the minimum documentation items
necessary for an adult to receive WIA reportable core services.
- All youth utilizing low income and one
barrier for their eligibility must have at least one low income factor and one
barrier factor documented.
- Any youth utilizing the 5% window must have
the barrier factor fully documented.
- All adults utilizing the priority policy
factor must have this item documented.
- All dislocated workers must have the factor
(A-D) that qualifies them as a dislocated worker fully documented.
The participant file should contain a copy of
the item(s) used to document the required item(s).
The use of self-certification is a last resort,
except for those individuals receiving only core services. It should only
be used if all other suggested items are unavailable or will cause undue
hardship for individuals to obtain.
