N-3100, Date of Birth

Revision 11-3; Effective September 1, 2011

Although MEPD policy does not require a date of birth for an applicant/recipient's family members, the Texas Integrated Eligibility Redesign System (TIERS) requires an entry in the date of birth (DOB) field for all members of the family unit for file clearance purposes. If a non-MBIC family unit member does not provide a DOB, use a default DOB of 02-29-1988. The date will automatically make any siblings' age over 22 so they will not be included in either the family unit or budget group. Do not request the DOB for a non-MBIC family member if it is not provided.
