(2) Helping you give or get the information we need to decide or continue eligibility;

(3) Helping you request continuing benefits;

(4) If you miss an appointment or deadline, contacting you about the reason before we reduce or end your benefits;

(5) Explaining to you the reduction in or ending of your benefits (see WAC 388-418-0020);

(6) If we know you have a person who helps you with your applications, notifying them when we need information or when we are about to reduce or end your benefits;

(7) Assisting you with requests for fair hearings;

(8) Providing protective payments if needed((, according to WAC 388-265-1250)); and

(9) On request, reviewing our decision to terminate, suspend or reduce your benefits.
