(1) When a person eligible to receive an award under ORS 243.956 is younger than 18 years of age or is incompetent, the board may pay the award to
a relative, guardian or attorney of the person on behalf of and for the benefit of
the person. In such case, the board may require the payee to:
(a) File an annual accounting of the award with the board; and
(b) Take such other action that the board determines is necessary and appropriate
for the benefit of the beneficiary of the award.
(2) Payment of claims is subject to availability of funds for benefit awards as provided
in the board's current biennial budget approved by the Legislative Assembly or the
FindLaw Codes may not reflect the most recent version of the law in your jurisdiction. Please verify the status of the code you are researching with the state legislature or via Westlaw before relying on it for your legal needs.
