46-206. Payment of assistance; authority of department of administration; limitation upon payment from state funds; methods of payment
A. When an assistance award is made, the certification to the department of administration provided for by section 46-204 shall, until modified, suspended or discontinued by order of the state department, or until the death of recipient, be the authority to the department of administration to draw a warrant or an electronic funds transfer voucher in payment of such assistance from the fund provided for in this title. Payment of assistance installments shall be by warrants or electronic funds transfer voucher. Warrants shall be endorsed by the recipient before the warrant shall be honored.
B. If federal funds are withdrawn or reduced, grants shall be reduced as provided in section 46-207, subsection B, unless the reduction results directly from a federal sanction imposed on this state for its failure to comply with the provisions of title IV-A of the social security act.
C. The state department may make any payment of assistance as a vendor payment regardless of the particular program. The purposes for such payment shall ordinarily be to expedite giving of assistance or to assure that the assistance is meeting basic maintenance needs.
