Annual Income Re-Exam
Regulations require that the Section 8 office re-examine income and family composition each year. Due to heavy workloads, it is strongly encouraged that appointments not be changed unless it is an emergency or the tenant is scheduled to work during appointment time. For those who are employed, this agency does not encourage you to take off work to attend this appointment, but does encourage the tenant to schedule vacation time or lunch breaks to attend re-examination appointment if necessary. Failure to keep scheduled appointment without contacting the Section 8 office could result in termination of Section 8 Housing assistance.
The Authority’s reexamination procedures are as follows:
- The re-examinations are performed 2 months prior to the actual anniversary the tenants’ admission to program.
- Re-examination appointment letters along with a Personal Declaration are mailed to tenants 10 days in advance of their scheduled re-exam appointment.
