Assignment of Support Rights; Not SNAP

In all programs except the SNAP program:

  1. To be eligible for any program funded in whole or in part with federal grants under Title IV-A (TANF) of the Social Security Act, the filing group (see OAR 461-110-0310) must assign to the state its right to receive, from any other person, child support that accrues during any time period that the group receives assistance, not to exceed the total amount of assistance paid.

  2. To be eligible for any program funded in whole or in part with federal grants under Title IV-E of the Social Security Act, the filing group must assign to the state its right to receive, from any other person, child support that has accrued or that accrues during any time period that the group receives assistance, not to exceed the total amount of assistance paid.

  3. To be eligible for the OSIPM program, an individual must assign to the state the rights to medical support of the individual, or the rights to medical support of any other individual eligible for medical assistance under the state plan for whom the individual can legally make an assignment.

  4. Cash medical support received by the Department is retained by the Department as is necessary to reimburse the Department for OSIPM program medical assistance payments made on behalf of an individual with respect to whom such assignment was executed. To allow adequate time for reporting and payment of incurred medical services, the Department initiates reconciliation 12 months after termination of OSIPM benefits and subsequently issues any resulting refund to the individual or the individual’s legal guardian.

  5. When the Department provides benefits or services for the support of a child who is in a filing group in any program funded in whole or in part with a federal grant under Title IV-A (TANF) or IV-E of the Social Security Act, the right to child support for that child that any individual may have is deemed to be assigned to the state by operation of law.
