(305 ILCS 5/10-8) (from Ch. 23, par. 10-8)
    Sec. 10-8. Support Payments - Partial Support - Full Support. The notice to responsible relatives issued pursuant to Section 10-7 shall direct payment (a) to the Illinois Department in cases of applicants and recipients under Articles III, IV, V and VII, (b) except as provided in Section 10-3.1, to the local governmental unit in the case of applicants and recipients under Article VI, and (c) to the Illinois Department in cases of non-applicants and non-recipients given access to the child support enforcement services of this Article, as provided by Section 10-1. However, if the support payments by responsible relatives are sufficient to meet needs of a recipient in full, including current and anticipated medical needs, and the Illinois Department or the local governmental unit, as the case may be, has reasonable grounds to believe that such needs will continue to be provided in full by the responsible relatives, the relatives may be directed to make subsequent support payments to the needy person or to some person or agency in his behalf and the recipient shall be removed from the rolls. In such instance the recipient also shall be notified by registered or certified mail of the action taken. If a recipient removed from the rolls requests the Illinois Department to continue to collect the support payments in his behalf, the Department, at its option, may do so and pay amounts so collected to the person. The Department may provide for deducting any costs incurred by it in making the collection from the amount of any recovery made and pay only the net amount to the person.
    Payments under this Section to the Illinois Department pursuant to the Child Support Enforcement Program established by Title IV-D of the Social Security Act shall be paid into the Child Support Enforcement Trust Fund. All payments under this Section to the Illinois Department of Human Services shall be deposited in the DHS Recoveries Trust Fund. Disbursements from these funds shall be as provided in Sections 12-9.1 and 12-10.2 of this Code. Payments received by a local governmental unit shall be deposited in that unit's General Assistance Fund.
    To the extent the provisions of this Section are inconsistent with the requirements pertaining to the State Disbursement Unit under Sections 10-10.4 and 10-26 of this Code, the requirements pertaining to the State Disbursement Unit shall apply.
