Before or after asking for a hearing, you can ask your DSHS worker to explain more about the decision to stop or cut your assistance.
You may learn DSHS had wrong or was missing information. If that is the case, try to give DSHS the correct or missing information.
If you need help getting that information, you can ask the worker. If you must pay to get the information, ask DSHS to pay, or if DSHS will accept other proof that you don't need to pay to get.
You can also ask the DSHS worker's supervisor for a meeting to review the decision to deny you benefits. If you write to the supervisor, the supervisor must write back within 10 days. If that does not change the decision, you can write to the head (the administrator) of the local DSHS office. The administrator must write back to you in 10 days.
If you disagree with what the worker, supervisor, and administrator decide, the matter is final unless you also ask for or have asked for a hearing.
