The re-examination process is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requirement that allows SCCHA to review participant income and household composition and to adjust the household’s level of assistance accordingly. Regular re-examinations must be performed at least annually; however, programs operated under Moving to Work (MTW) have re-examinations every 2 or 3 years.
The effective date of a regular re-examination is determined when participants are first admitted to the program. Generally, the month of your review does not change.
Failure to return paperwork or to show for your appointment may result in the termination of your assistance.
SCCHA must use the HUD-provided verification guidance to verify all information that is used to calculate housing assistance. The highest level of verification must be used when available. These methods are listed below in order of importance.
