Answer

Each State should have established procedures that workers must follow in managing applications, including standards for how quickly applications are processed. When individuals apply for benefits, they should receive information about benefits, conditions of eligibility, related available services, and client rights and responsibilities. If you have a concern or complaint about these matters, you may wish to contact your State or local welfare officials.
