Thanks for your PRESUMPTION in educating me about the rules of welfare.
The ability to track state cash assistance rules became much more complex in the mid-1990s when many states received waivers to experiment with new policies, such as family caps and time limits. These waivers also allowed states to modify the structure of their AFDC programs previously set by the federal government. These changes were described in the Waiver Terms and Conditions agreed upon by the state and federal government. Since the Terms and Conditions did not address certain implementation details and the implementation schedules often changed after the agreement was reached, the information available at DHHS was no longer comprehensive.
The replacement of AFDC with the TANF made tracking states' policies even more difficult. The TANF State Plans submitted to DHHS generally lacked sufficient information to completely understand the details of eligibility, benefit computation, and client requirements. This detailed information could only be obtained from state regulations, caseworker manuals and/or interviews with state administrators.

Sorry, but you see, I was working those programs in the late 2000" and believe me I was really good at what I was doing. Obviously you don't understand as to what I mean by "basic elegibility." which means for example the applicant has to have property or assets that make them eligible, for example. the absense or a parent or not.
the fact that they have minor children under 18 when they first apply.
etc. those are basic elements in the welfare system yes there are waivers and other differences that apply by state. but, for example the amount of property or assets that a recipient has to have is the same in all State and that goes for Food Stamps also.
now some states require that you have work history and some dont. and some state require that you have a waiting period and some don't that is not what is meant by basic eligibility rules.
take a look at http://anfdata.urban.org/wrd/tables.cfm
And see some of the difference in different states IN this particular situation read what is the rules that apply to both parents. which is table 1B2
Now it is I .that will not longer waste my time with an individual that does not comprehend what are the differences in the welfare rules and what does it mean by Basic Welfare requirement rules for applicants.
