Case LINK ID’s (DE#79)and Case Person ID’s (DE#80) Part 1

  • These are DIFFERENT!!!

  • Term “LINK ID” can lead to confusion

  • Both assigned by DCF

    • Person ID identifies an individual.

    • Case ID identifies a case, usually including several individuals (“participants”).

    • Within a case, all individuals will have the same case ID, but different Person ID’s.

    • Be sure to specify which number you want when dealing with DCF staff .

    • If Case and Person ID’s are the same something is wrong.
