Effective April 1, 2018 Rule of Civil Procedure 1910.16-2(b), concerning treatment of a child’s derivative benefits, will be amended. Under the new Rule it will be important for the family law practitioner to know which parent the child’s derivative benefit originated, the reason for the benefit (death, disability or retirement), and the amounts each household receives. If the Obligor did not generate the child’s derivative benefit he/she will no longer receive an offset against his/her child support obligation.
