Attention: All CalWORKs and CalFresh Recipients
CalFresh, CalWORKs, Medi-Cal and General Assistance Forms
In response to COVID-19, your CalWORKs and CalFresh Benefits will continue for March, April, May, and June 2020. This means that if your semiannual report form (SAR 7) or annual renewal is due in March, April, or May 2020, you do not have to turn it in or complete your interview. If you already turned in your March SAR 7 or renewal paperwork and it was not processed yet, it will not be processed. If your March SAR 7 or renewal paperwork included information that would make your benefits go up or if you reported that your gross monthly income has gone over your Income Reporting Threshold (IRT), please call the county to report this information over the phone.
Even though you do not have to turn in your March, April or May form or complete your interview, you must still contact the county to report anytime your gross monthly income goes over your IRT. Also, if you report that your income has gone down, your benefit amount may go up. Call the county to find out what your IRT is, to report if your income goes down, or to make other mandatory reports, including a change of address for CalWORKs.
