1502 Time Period for Requesting a Hearing - The date of request shall be the date the agency received the request. The date of request for oral requests is the day the person requests a fair hearing in person or by telephone. The date of receipt of a fair hearing request submitted after business hours by telephone, fax, or email shall be the next business day.

1502.01 - Unless preempted by federal law, a request for a fair hearing shall be in writing and received by the agency within 33 days from the date the notice of action is mailed. When a request for a fair hearing is received prior to the effective date of action as prescribed in 1503, assistance may be continued.

Such request may relate to an applicant's request for assistance, which is denied, or is not acted upon with reasonable promptness, and to any recipient who is aggrieved by any agency action resulting in suspension, discontinuance, or termination of assistance.
