Where to Find It
On the CD-9600 form, look at the space under Section II, "Family Eligibility and Reason for Needing Services, A. Family Eligibility Status, Protective Services" box.
Rules and Guidelines
- This information is only necessary for CPS-referred families in which family income is not collected. It allows the Monthly Family Income field to be blank.
- Do not use the CPS Override if Monthly Family Income is known.
FAQs About the CPS Override
What if we do collect Monthly Family Income for a particular CPS Case? Do we check this box?
No. You do not have to check the box when you report income for a CPS case. However, you still should indicate CPS as the Reason for Receiving Child Development Services.
