PUBLIC AID-CHILD SUPPORT PAYMT
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code with respect to child support
enforcement. Provides that if the State Disbursement Unit fails to
disburse a support payment to the person entitled to the payment
within 2 business days, then that person is entitled to a civil
penalty payment in addition to the support payment. The amount of the
civil penalty payment shall be 2% of the amount of the delayed support
payment. Effective immediately.
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Provides that a recipient of support payments is entitled to a
civil penalty payment if the State Disbursement Unit fails to disburse
a support payment within the time frame prescribed by federal
guidelines (rather than within 2 business days).
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 2.
Replaces all of the amendatory provisions concerning a civil
penalty payment for late disbursement of support payments by the State
Disbursement Unit with substantially similar provisions. Provides
that the amount of the civil penalty payment shall be 2% of the amount
of the support payment for each 30-day period or fraction of such a
period that the support payment was not disbursed within the time
frame prescribed by federal guidelines. Provides that the civil
penalty payment is to be paid from moneys allocated by the Department
of Public Aid for the operation of the State Disbursement Unit.
Provides that the State Disbursement Unit shall determine eligibility
for a civil penalty payment based solely on whether the State
Disbursement Unit failed to disburse a support payment to the
applicant within the time frame prescribed by federal guidelines.
Provides that the civil penalty payment provisions apply to support
payments received by the State Disbursement Unit on or after October
1, 1999 and apply only to support payments required to be processed by
the State Disbursement Unit.
