Sometimes an applicant or recipient doesn't agree with an action that a county worker takes on an application or case. A client has several steps or choices. One choice is to speak to the worker and/or a supervisor to see if things can be resolved at the department level.
A next step or alternative is to file a Fair Hearing Request (NA Back 9 (PDF)) within 90 days of the county's action. The 90 day period begins to run when the county mails you a notice of action.
