12.2.3 Self-Attestation / Participant Statement

Effective date: September 1, 2020

Revised date: October 1, 2020

For much of the information collected during the registration process, the participant can self-attest to the data.

Self-attestation must be allowed for any and all data elements for which it is allowable; career planners must work with each individual to use the easiest means of documentation possible for that person. Local WDBs and/or service providers may not establish additional documentation requirements that could create artificial barriers to program participation for individuals with barriers to employment/education.

Key requirements for an acceptable self-attestation/participant statement1 are:

  1. the individual identifies their status for permitted elements; and
  2. the individual signs and dates a written form attesting to this self-identification.

The form and signature can be the local WIOA application form, WIOA registration form (printed ASSET Manage Programs screens), or any other form/statement that satisfies the requirements above. Self-attestation/participant statements submitted through electronic means and containing electronic signatures are acceptable (e.g., emails, CEPT application, etc.)2
