Do I get credit for dependent disability payments paid on my behalf to my children?

(1) When the department of labor and industries or a self-insurer pays compensation under chapter 51.32 RCW on behalf of or on account of the child or children of a noncustodial parent (NCP), the division of child support (DCS) treats the amount of compensation the department or self-insurer pays on behalf of the child or children as if the NCP paid the compensation toward the NCP's child support obligations.
(2) When the Social Security administration pays Social Security disability dependency benefits, retirement benefits, or survivors insurance benefits on behalf of or on account of the child or children of an NCP who is a disabled person, a retired person, or a deceased person, DCS treats the amount of benefits paid for the child or children as if the NCP paid the benefits toward the NCP's child support obligation for the period for which benefits are paid.
(3) When the veterans' administration (now known as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs) apportions a veteran's benefits to pay child support on behalf of or on account of the child or children of the veteran, DCS treats the amount of benefits paid for the child or children for all purposes as if the veteran paid the benefits toward the satisfaction of that person's child support obligation for the period for which benefits are paid.
(4) Under no circumstances does the NCP have a right to reimbursement of any compensation paid under subsection (1), (2), or (3) of this section.
