Face-to-Face Interview Waiver Criteria

This is to advise you that we are expanding our criteria for the approval of waivers of the face-to-face interview at both initial and recertification. We also wish to note that since State agencies already may waive the face-to-face interview on an individual case basis based on a finding of hardship, we are now categorizing these waivers as waivers of the requirement that State agencies document hardship prior to utilizing alternatives to the face-to-face interview.
