Cooperation between DTA and the Department of Revenue Child Support Enforcement (DOR/CSE) is a requirement for TAFDC eligibility for households where a parent is absent. The Absence page in the Assessed Person Nonfinancials workflow in BEACON is the tool for DTA-DOR/CSE information-sharing. Effective December 8, 2017, these changes are being made to this page:
- A number of unnecessary fields are being removed.
- The T-A34/36 is no longer a standalone form but follows the Absent Parent Affidavit on applications and reevaluations and is now entitled the Absent Parent Information form.
- DOR/CSE’s concurrent access to the information on the page is the sole exchange of absent parent information between DTA and DOR/CSE, setting a greater standard for entering claims of good cause for not cooperating with child support requirements at once. IMPORTANT: Staff must no longer mail DOR/CSE any absent parent information: T-A34/36 forms, Absent Parent Affidavits, birth certificates, etc.
The purpose of this Online Guide Transmittal is to advise staff about revisions to Online Guide pages to reflect these changes.
