Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. Creates the Child Support Pays Program under which the Department of Public Aid shall pay to families receiving TANF cash assistance an amount equal to either 50% of the monthly child support collected or the amount of monthly child support collected and required to be paid to the family pursuant to administrative rule, whichever is greater. Provides that the child support passed through to a family pursuant to these provisions shall not affect the family's eligibility for assistance or decrease any amount otherwise payable as assistance to the family under the TANF program until a family's non-exempt income and child support passed through to the family equal the federal poverty level, at which point cash assistance to the family may be terminated.
