CINA : OASDI benefits: due process

CoA Nos. 0095, and 0101, Sept. Term 2012. Reported. Opinion by Harrell, J., Filed Sept. 26, 2013.

The juvenile court had no subject matter jurisdiction over a local DSS’ allocation of a foster child’s federal OASDI benefits, where the department was appointed representative payee by the Social Security Administration and applied the funds to reimburse itself for the CINA’s current maintenance cost; however, the department must notify the child’s CINA counsel whenever it applies to be appointed representative payee for the child’s federal OASDI benefits and whenever it receives those funds.
