Citation: 1 N.J.A.R. 94
Decision Date: 1979
Agency: DIVISION OF PUBLIC WELFARE
Synopsis: Petitioner's failure to cooperate with the county welfare agency properly resulted in the denial of her food stamp application. Petitioner refused to provide information concerning the proceeds of an automobile accident claim which was being held in escrow for her by her attorney. N.J.A.C. 10:87-2.14 to 17 permits denial of benefits on these grounds. Petitioner's contention that the funds should not be counted as income due to regulations which exclude 'inaccessible resources' is incorrect. The regulations do not intend to shelter money which is easily converted into cash or whose receipt the applicant can control. Brian O'Malley, Esq., for Petitioner (Camden Regional Legal Services) Gerald Burke, Esq., for Respondent
