SUPPORT COLLECTIONS WHICH CAUSE INELIGIBILITY

Table of Contents

 

Child Support Fiscal Services will notify the caseworker when an absent parent pays court ordered current support in an amount that is equal to or exceeds the Families First payment amount.  Upon notification, the caseworker must re-compute a prospective budget using the amount of current child support to determine if the case continues to be eligible for Families First.  If the AU is ineligible for Families First benefits with the child support included, the Families First case must be closed after the adverse action period.  If the AU continues to be eligible, the Budget Effective Date on the absent parent screens will prevent the income from being counted in the ongoing Families First and Food Stamp budgets.
