1. When references are contacted, Family Assistance/Client Services case notes must show the name and address of each reference, the place and date of the contact, the known facts and the basis for the person's knowledge of facts related to the person's residence.
2. As receipt of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) is limited to 60 months when an adult is included in the benefit, verification of receipt of out‑of-state benefits is required. Contact with another state may be by telephone or by use of Form 08TA005E, Out-of-State TANF Benefits, to verify the months and years of TANF benefits received out-of-state. This information is faxed to Family Support Services Division (FSSD), TANF Section or e-mailed to TANF@OKDHS.org.
3. (a) Among the factors considered in relation to the person's own statement of intent are:
(1) establishing living quarters;
(2) registering to vote;
(3) accepting work; or
(4) entering into business.
(b) Accepting employment obviously temporary in nature does not, of itself, constitute evidence of change of residence.
(c) Inability to return to the state because of a physical condition or a genuine family emergency is not considered as inconsistent with a statement of intent to retain Oklahoma residence since it cannot be said the person has voluntarily chosen to stay in the other state.
(d) Evidence of intentions to change residence may be a statement of intent at the point of departure or may develop later in the other location.
