Our objective was to determine whether Connecticut has continued to reimburse the Federal Government for its share of collected Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) overpayments in a timely manner. Connecticut reimbursed the Federal share of AFDC collections for 15 of the 16 quarters that we reviewed. It did not reimburse the Federal share of AFDC collections for one quarter in a timely manner. We recommended that Connecticut strengthen its internal controls to verify that the Federal Government receives its share of future AFDC collections. Connecticut agreed to renew efforts to verify that the Federal Government receives and cashes checks from the State.
