How does DCS distribute support collections in a former assistance case?

(1) A former assistance case is one where the family is not currently receiving a TANF grant, but has at some time in the past.
(2) Subject to the exceptions provided under WAC 388-14A-5005, the division of child support (DCS) distributes support collections within each Title IV-D former-assistance case:
(a) First, to satisfy the current support obligation for the month DCS received the collection;
(b) Second, to satisfy support debts owed to the family;
(c) Third, to satisfy support debts which are conditionally or temporarily assigned to the department. These collections are disbursed according to WAC 388-14A-2039;
(d) Fourth, to satisfy support debts which are permanently assigned to the department to reimburse the cumulative amount of assistance which has been paid to the family; and
(e) Fifth, to prepaid support as provided for under WAC 388-14A-5008.
