|ENDING CHILD SUPPORT INCOME IN FAMIS|
| When an individual is approved for Temporary Assistance benefits, s/he must turn over all child support income paid to the children for whom the recipient receives Temporary Assistance. The child support income must be assigned to the Family Support Division (FSD) - Child Support Unit the month following the approval for Temporary Assistance.
To correctly determine the benefit amounts for the Temporary Assistance, Food Stamps, and Child Care Programs, staff must end the child support income. To end this income, take the following steps.
EXAMPLE: Ms. A applied for Temporary Assistance, food stamps, and Child Care assistance on November 1, 2004. Her son receives $100 in child support monthly from his father. The child support income is entered in the controlled flow on the Income (FMX0) screen. The caseworker completes the controlled flow and determines Ms. A is eligible to receive Temporary Assistance. There is no outstanding verification on which to pend the case. The worker goes to the Income (FMX0) screen and ends the child support income effective November 30, 2004, as the child support must be assigned to the FSD Child Support Unit beginning in December 2004. The worker completes the application by typing EDRES on the command line, requesting an eligibility determination, and authorizing the actions.
