  1. When a child support order is $50 per month or more and child support payments collected by HFS or its agent are:
    • at least $50, a pass through payment of up to $50 is issued to the family. The payment is issued within 15 calendar days from the collection date shown on KIDS.
    • less than $50, a pass through payment is issued to the family. The payment is issued within 15 calendar days after the end of the month it was collected.
  2. When a child support order is for less than $50 per month and the amount of the current non-earmarked child support collected is less than $50 in a month, a pass through payment is issued to the family within 15 calendar days after the support obligation was met. The amount of the pass through payment is issued for the exact amount of child support collected, up to the amount of the current support order.

NOTE: Normally, only one current pass through payment is received in a fiscal month. It is, however, possible for a client to receive more than one current pass through payment in a fiscal month.

*This payment is being held until $50 is collected or until the end of the month as the support order is at least $50.

**This payment is lost in the mail and received by child support on 10-20-YY.

Both of these pass through payments are considered current and are exempt income for TANF.
