San Benito County offers visitors and residents a wide array of “hidden” treasures. In February of 2013, the majestic mountains of Pinnacles National Monument were officially designated at the 59th National Park in the U.S. The County’s emerging wine country offers highly acclaimed and award-winning wines set among the scenic landscape of the area. Home to mission San Juan Bautista, the County also offers the enjoyment of an array of outdoor recreational activities, Agri-tourism, public library, museums, art festivals and galleries. The ideal proximity situated between the Silicon Valley and Monterey Bay provides easy access to the numerous amenities of the big city, while still offering an idyllic and scenic setting with affordable housing and a quality lifestyle.

Incumbents may have prior experience determining eligibility for loans, financial assistance, unemployment or veterans benefits, or publicly or privately funded health, counseling or social services programs; have completed initial classroom training provided as part of the Eligibility Specialist Trainee training program; or may have the required level of education. Incumbents will be placed in a work team and initially may receive classroom instruction prior to being assigned casework and/or tasks. Incumbents will work under close supervision while learning to independently determine public assistance eligibility, and apply knowledge and skills learned from their training in completing eligibility tasks and applying complex regulations. As incumbents gain experience and work toward the journey level in the series, they are expected to work with more independence and have the ability to complete more complex tasks and/or handle larger client caseloads. Incumbents are expected to progress to the journey-level Eligibility Specialist II upon completion of one year of satisfactory performance in the entry-level Eligibility Specialist I classification. Eligibility Specialist II The Eligibility Specialist II is the journey-level classification in the Eligibility Specialist series. Incumbents demonstrate working knowledge of eligibility regulations, procedures and eligibility software systems. Eligibility Specialist II incumbents handle more complex tasks and/or caseloads independently with consultation as needed by Eligibility Specialist IIIs or Eligibility Supervisors. Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the lower level or if filled from the outside, require prior experience as an Eligibility Specialist, Eligibility Worker or comparable position. The class of Eligibility Specialist II is distinguished from the Eligibility Specialist I as the latter requires a higher level of consultation and supervision and is working toward achieving a working knowledge of program rules and regulations. The Eligibility Specialist II class is distinguished from the Eligibility Specialist III in that the latter class is assigned lead specialist duties or special assignments with a greater degree of independent judgment. Eligibility Specialist III The Eligibility Specialist III is the advanced journey/lead-level classification and subject matter expert in the Eligibility Specialist series. Incumbents perform the most complex work and specialized assignments requiring an advanced level of technical knowledge in public assistance programs, departmental processes and caseload/workload administration.

In addition, incumbents may perform help desk functions, provide training to a unit of workers determining eligibility for public assistance and/or serve as a lead worker for less experienced employees. Incumbents demonstrate advanced knowledge of eligibility regulations, procedures and eligibility software systems. Other assignments may include performing quality control and/or quality assurance reviews, participating in early fraud prevention programs, representing the County in administrative appeals and fair hearings and/or performing other specialized assignments and related work as required. The Eligibility Specialist III differs from the Eligibility Supervisor in that the latter directly supervises a unit of Eligibility Specialists. The class of Eligibility Specialist III is distinguished from the Eligibility Specialist II as the latter requires a higher level of supervision and the Eligibility Specialist III is assigned lead specialist duties or special assignments with a greater degree of independent judgment. SUPERVISION EXERCISED AND RECEIVED Incumbents in the Eligibility Specialist I and II classifications typically receive supervision from an Eligibility Supervisor and may receive lead direction from an Eligibility Specialist III. Incumbents in the Eligibility Specialist III classification receive supervision from an Eligibility Supervisor or other manager.
