Temporary Assistance/Case Management Manual

0315.025.05 Cash

If a claim is to be repaid in cash, the EU is instructed to make the payment in the form of bank draft, cashier’s check, or money order whenever possible. Cash payment is accepted. A receipt is given to the EU and a copy filed in the claims section of the record. If a cash payment is made to the local office, a money order or cashier’s check may be purchased at the local office’s expense. Checks received are endorsed “FOR DEPOSIT ONLY TO THE CREDIT OF THE TREASURER OF THE STATE OF MISSOURI – DEPT OF SOCIAL SERVICES” and all payments are submitted daily.

Payments received in the local office are forwarded to Division of Finance and Administrative Services (DFAS) with a completed CARS-2, using transaction code 01.
