Child Care Reporting--Child Protective Services

CPS Override


The Child Protective Services (CPS) Override box is used to indicate the family is a CPS referral and allows the agency to leave the Monthly Family Income field on the CDD-801B report blank.

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

Question 1

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.
