Q: How is the Kinship Reimbursement Payment dispersed?
The Kinship Reimbursement Payment is paid monthly similar to foster care payments, but because it is a reimbursement, it is paid in arrears. In other words, the payments are determined by the number of days the child was with the kinship caregiver the previous month. Payments are processed for care days in the prior month on or about the 15
of each month, and disbursed at the end of that month for care days in the prior month.
