PDFWAC 110-50-1200

How does the department treat resources and unearned income of a child in foster care?

(1) Unearned income includes supplemental security income (SSI), Retirement, Survivors and Disability Insurance (RSDI), veteran's benefits, railroad retirement benefits, inheritances, or any other payments for which the child is eligible, unless specifically exempted by the terms and conditions of the receipt of the income. The department must use income not exempted to cover the child's cost of care, except for resources held in trust for an American Indian child.
(2) Any person, agency or court that receives payments on behalf of a child in out-of-home care must send the payments to the department's division of child support.
