Introduction
• Unlike the Traditional Application, the Streamlined (MAGI)
application is designed to require very little evidence
management by the user.
• In many situations, unnecessary changes to evidence
submitted through the Streamlined Application may interfere
with successfully processing the application, and can result
in incorrect eligibility decisions.
• This presentation will review the basic principles, as well as
helpful tips, for managing evidence on the Streamlined
Application.

The address listed on the MAGI application may not be the same as the
address listed on the Person page.
• If worker has contacted the client and the address on the Person page is
no longer current, update the address.
• MAGI rules use the Participant Address on the MAGI application, but NC
TRACKS uses the address on the Person page.
• Every individual’s Participant Address on the MAGI application must be
identical in order to be counted in the Household.
