An authorized representative is an adult, over the age of eighteen, who has written authorization to act on the behalf of an assistance unit of which he or she is not currently a member, and who would otherwise not be eligible to act without such authorization.

An assistance unit may be represented in various aspects of the eligibility process by a responsible individual who has been given prior authorization to act as the assistance unit's representative.
a. in the TFA program, by the caretaker relative of the dependent child;
b. in the Aged Blind or Disabled (AABD) and Medicaid programs, by the applicant, or if the applicant is a child, incompetent or incapacitated, by the parent, custodian, or court appointed fiduciary;
