(from Ch. 23, par. 10-8)
Support Payments - Partial Support - Full Support.
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
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.
