Adoption Assistance

In FY2023 the Special Investigations Unit investigated allegations that adoptive parents failed to report that their adopted child was no longer in their home. The agent found that the parents received more than $19,000 in Adoption Assistance Program benefits for which they were not eligible. The investigation also found that the parents improperly received an additional $87,000 in FAP and MA benefits for the absent child. The investigation was referred for prosecution.
