1211.01 Responsibility to Submit Identifiable Application - The applicant shall submit an application containing a legible name and address (unless homeless), and which has been signed.

1211.02 Responsibility to Supply Information - A client has the responsibility to supply, insofar as able, information essential to the establishment of eligibility.

Information which is "time-sensitive" and received in the office through a drop box, mail slot or other such manner at the opening of the business day shall be considered as received during the previous work day. Information which is received as a fax or copy, but is required in original form, shall be considered as received when the fax/copy arrives in the office provided the original document arrives in a timely manner as determined at the local level. In general, a fax or copy of a document shall be acceptable without requiring an original (including an application form or monthly report form). However, an original document shall be required for establishing age, identity and citizenship and alienage status, and when determined to be necessary based on prudent person judgment.

1211.03 Responsibility to Provide Verification - The client has primary responsibility for providing verification (certain exceptions to these requirements are specified in the verification section). See 1330.

1211.04 Responsibility to Authorize Release of Information - A client has the responsibility to give written permission for release of information when needed.
