WAC 388-14A-2025

What services does the division of child support provide for a nonassistance support enforcement case?

(1) The division of child support (DCS) provides full support enforcement services for every IV-D case.
(2) DCS provides either full or limited nonassistance support enforcement services for recipients of medicaid-only benefits as provided in WAC 388-14A-2005(4).
(3) Some cases do not receive full support enforcement services. Nonassistance cases where DCS provides payment processing services are called payment services only (PSO) cases.
(4) In a PSO case, DCS provides only records maintenance and payment processing services if the payee under a support order does not submit an application for support enforcement services and the:
(a) Order directs support payments to DCS or to the Washington state support registry (WSSR); and
(b) The clerk of the court submitted the order under RCW 26.23.050.
(5) DCS continues to provide services without an application after a:
(a) Public assistance recipient stops receiving cash assistance; or
(b) Recipient of medicaid-only benefits becomes ineligible for medicaid-only benefits, unless the recipient declines support enforcement services or requests additional services.
(6) If you receive services as a former recipient of assistance, as described in subsection (5), you must cooperate with DCS in the same way as when you received a grant.
