Seminar  Program

California Public Benefits: The Basics for Nonprofit and Pro Bono Advocacy 2018 (Free)


Select a Location:

Why You Should Attend
Low-income clients need your help to protect their rights to potentially life-saving benefits. Many low-income clients have difficulty navigating the confusing and bureaucratic processes to establish and maintain eligibility for public benefits. Without legal assistance and advocacy, large numbers of clients go without the benefits to which they are entitled, which can often lead to unnecessary hunger and homelessness. Attorneys who work with low-income people or pro bono attorneys interested in working on these types of cases can learn the basics of public benefits law.

What You Will Learn
Overview of CalWORKs, CalFresh, General Assistance
Overview of Medi-Cal and other health benefits, including the Affordable Care Act
Overview of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and the Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants (CAPI)
Understanding of common issues that result in administrative hearings
Understanding of strategies and procedures for filing writs

Who Should Attend
Attorneys assisting pro bono clients with benefits matters through representation or in clinical settings, firm pro bono coordinators and partners, corporate law department pro bono managers, law clinic students and faculty, public interest and nonprofit organization attorneys and staff, benefits advocates, and benefits agency attorneys and staff.

9:00 Opening Remarks
Joanna Parnes, Steven Weiss

9:15 CalWORKs
The federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program, known as CalWORKs in California, provides an essential but weakening safety net to California families with minor children. Topics to be addressed by this panel include Welfare-to-Work requirements and exemptions, Time on Aid limits and extenders, child care and support services, and the Maximum Family Grant (MFG) or child exclusion rule.
Cynthia Chagolla, Antionette Dozier

10:15 CalFresh
The federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps and called CalFresh in California, provides assistance to individuals and households to meet their basic nutritional needs.  This panel will give an overview of the CalFresh program, and address common issues related to the CalFresh program that result in state hearings and potentially in appeals, as well as CalFresh during Disasters and immigrant eligibility.
Stephanie Haffner, Lisa M. Newstrom

11:15 Networking Break

11:30 General Assistance
General Assistance (GA), also known as Interim Assistance (federally) or General Relief (in some counties), provides a meager cash and/or in-kind benefit, to indigent individuals in California who are not eligible for other cash benefits. GA is state mandated, but county funded and administered, resulting in a patchwork of different program rules. This panel will provide an overview of the GA program, as well as indigent healthcare, and identify common issues that result in hearings and appeals.
Lauren Hansen, Steven Weiss

12:30 Lunch

1:30 Health Care for Low-Income Californians: A Primer on Medi-Cal and Covered California
Because of the Affordable Care Act, low-income Californians have better access to health coverage with the expansion of Medi-Cal, the creation of Covered California, and some county programs. This training will provide a basic overview of these programs, including eligibility requirements, covered services, and due process rights for each program.  Our training will also help advocates issue spot some common questions and problems that health consumers might have.  Medi-Cal is a publicly funded health insurance program that covers many low-income individuals and families in California. Covered California is a health insurance marketplace where Californians can purchase health insurance coverage for themselves and their families, often with subsidies to help with premiums and co-pays.
Corilee K.A. Racela, Barbara Texidor

2:30 Social Security Disability Insurance, Supplemental Security Income and CAPI
Social Security disability benefits, including Supplemental Security Income (SSI) help many Californians with disabilities to maintain housing stability and to access other services. California’s Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants (CAPI) provides similar benefits for immigrants who were made ineligible for SSI by the 1996 welfare reform due to their immigration status. This training will provide an overview of the SSDI and SSI programs, eligibility criteria, common issues that result in the need for hearings and appeals, and Social Security complaints in federal court.
Joanna Parnes, Jessica Redditt

3:30 Networking Break

3:45 Writs & Appeals in Public Benefits Cases
Public benefits cases can proceed from administrative hearings to court appeals.  This workshop will discuss the use of writ petitions to compel state or county compliance with the law in state court. Participants will learn strategies and procedures for litigating administrative writs on behalf of individuals, as well as more broad-based challenges to government policies using the “policy writ” under C.C.P. § 1085.  Topics will include how to develop an adequate administrative record for purposes of appeal, and the standards of judicial review under each type of proceeding.
