Pa. benefits screening tool may be telling potential applicants they don't qualify

A study found errors in a Pennsylvania public benefits screening tool that could have wrongly told people they were not eligible for benefits, when in fact they were.

They were told that they were not eligible for a state child care subsidy in every instance, when thousands should have been considered eligible, according to the paper.

State human service officials say they will correct any errors as swiftly as possible.
