Grrr. That's annoying. We don't do this for the money but the stipend sure helps! Yes, call your caseworker. I have also called Trenton directly to complain about late checks. It is the Accounting office of DYFS. Look on their website and I will also see if I can find the number. Have you gotten one yet? They are small, white and blue envelopes. They can get mixed up in other mailthough.

the only thing i can think would be maybe they were mailed tuesday b'c of easter monday, but that is still a full week later that you haven't gotten it...definitely would warrant a call. I don't think it makes you look money hungry...like you said, those diapers are expensive!! if for some reason you can't get through to the cw, I would call the FAFS worker, part of their job is to help with stipend issues....

I had this happen to me. My son's CW went on vacation and apparently the CWs have to go into the "system" each month and check that you are the resource family for your child. This activates the check to be cut for your foster child. My son's CW forgot to have the covering CW do this...but then forgot the next month also!!! Then we had to do some kind of paperwork for missed stipends. It took awhile to get the issue rectified because of the amount of time that went by...anyway, this is my long-winded way of saying definitely call your CW before too much time goes by!!!
