UMP - DCSS Requirements
Parents of an UMP are legally responsible for their child's cash and medical support.
The AZTECS absent parent screens and the DCSS documents must be completed for each of the following:
Each parent who does not live with the UMP
The absent parent of the UMP's child
UMPs who are determined ineligible for CA cash, but eligible for CA Supportive Services must comply with DCSS cooperation requirements. The CA UMP is not required to surrender court ordered child support.
When the UMP or the parent with whom the UMP resides refuses to comply with DCSS requirements, complete the following:
Deny CA when it is a new application
When the CA case is ongoing, sanction according to Progressive Sanction policy
