ACIN I-17-07: CalWORKs: Retroactive $50 Child Support Disregard (4/6/07)

In the “Better late than never,” category, CDSS announces that it this past February, the Department  of Child Support Services (DCSS) sent out retroactive $50 child support disregards, to compensate for the failure to timely credit and issue payments in the transition between Local Child Support Agencies and DCSS.  A reminder that the retroactive payments (as well as the regular ones) are disregarded as income for both CalWORKs and Food Stamps.  And, as an added bonus, recipients “shall not be discontinued for failure to report” the retro payment, presumably a reference to accepting a QR 7 as complete whether or not the retro payment is reported.   [Download]
