If the client appeals the recoupment:
1. Decide if there was an overpayment when a Notice of Receipt of Child Support (Form 3473) is received. Form 3473 shows that a TANF client received child support payments directly from the Clerk of the Circuit Court that were not forwarded to Springfield. See PM 24-05-02-d for policy for a support payment kept by a client.
