Support payments sent from DCSS as an amount owed for support are called redirected support.
When a case is removed from zero grant, or when a suspended case is resumed, reduce the benefit check by the amount redirected to the client for the same time period, minus up to a $100 disregard for pass through for one child, or up to a $200 disregard for pass through for two or more children.
Report an overpayment of the amount of the benefit check not reduced by the amount of the redirected child support.
NOTE: Child support is exempt from medical cases that use MAGI Budgeting. See PM 08-03-02-a.
