Setting a standard for an unearned entitlement.
Via NBC 25:
Able-bodied adults in Michigan without dependents will be required to meet federal work requirements that have been waived for more than a decade, according to a news release for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
MDHHS will be sending letters to more than 67,000 people this week informing them of the requirement.
Once they reach the date of their next annual case eligibility redetermination, the able-bodied adults will have three months to meet the work requirements or qualify for an exemption before they will lose food assistance benefits.
New applicants who are determined eligible for food assistance will be subject to work requirement immediately.
