When a responsible relative is not living with the client, refer them to the FRU.
Refer the following relatives to FRU:
NOTE: Do not make a referral when:
Using Standard A (see WAG 09-02-02), the FRU determines the relative's ability to support and may establish a support liability. Also, refer to FRU any
changes in the responsible relative's status.
Responsible relatives not living with the client may be directed by a HFS Administrative Support Order (ASO) to make support payments directly to HFS.
Until that ASO is sent, consider any payment made to the client as unearned income, unless the client states it is voluntary support. If it is voluntary support, the Family Community Resource Center needs to report the child support terms. Do not budget
payments made directly to Springfield.
