USER NOTE: MSIS 'MAINTENANCE-ASSISTANCE-STATUS' (MAS) IS IN POSITION #1 AND 'BASIS-OF-ELIGIBILITY' (BOE) IS IN POSITION #2. CODING IS THE SAME AS IN 1996-98 MAX FILES, EXCEPT THAT VALUES 51-55 ARE ADDED FOR 1999 AND VALUE 3A IS ADDED FOR 2000. THERE MAY BE SMALL NUMBERS OF RECORDS WITH INCONSISTENT VALUES BECAUSE MSIS HAS NO MAS/BOE CONSISTENCY CHECKS. PRIOR TO THE END OF THE AFDC PROGRAM, GROUPS 14-17 WERE AFDC CASH RECIPIENTS.

USER NOTE: WHEN SOMEONE HAS CLAIMS BUT NO ELIGIBILITY INFORMATION, THIS DATA ELEMENT IS 9-FILLED.
