WHEN TO USE IT

 

The form is used to explain:

      The current case status

      The reasons for closing or transferring the case

      The activities since the last case recording which were directed toward the case closing or transfer

      The living arrangement and education/employment status of aging out adolescents. 

 

HOW TO USE IT

 

      Access it though the NJ Spirit Desktop> Click on the case name to open the Maintain Case screen> Open the Closing History tab> Pull down the Options drop-down> Highlight the form name> Click the Go button.

      Complete this template outside of the NJ Spirit application as part of a contingency plan when the applications unavailable. You are still required to create the form in NJ Spirit when the application becomes available.

      Form instructions are also available through the NJ Spirit Desktop.

 

TIPS FOR COMPLETING THE FORM

 

      When you check the "Transfer to" check box, also enter the local office where you are transferring the case.

      Both the sending and receiving Transfer Liaisons sign and date the form.

      The Worker's and Supervisor's names prefill. The Worker and Supervisor must enter the date next to his or her name.

 

Note: For an adolescent, CP&P Form 5-66, Adolescent Case Closing Agreement, and CP&P Form 5-67, Adolescent Case Closing Checklist, need to be completed prior to case closure, and the CP&P Form 5-43, Transitional Plan for Adolescents, must be completed within 90 days of case closure.
