Question: My question is about non-related legal guardianship (NRLG) case (non-probate). If the youth is in college and still receiving support from the guardian but does not live in the home of the guardian full-time (i.e. lives in a dorm or something), is the guardian still able to receive extended benefits?
Answer: Yes. As long as the guardian is providing support to the youth, they can receive the AFDC-FC benefits even if the youth is at college. The funding has to be paid to the NRLG. It cannot be paid directly to the youth, as it would if the youth were living in a SILP. (See ACL 11-69, p. 15)
