Question 5.  
We understand that the timing for conducting the initial permanency hearing and six-month periodic review is based on the date the child is considered to have entered foster care.

Question 6.  
When a child in foster care is placed in another State and the sending State transfers the child's placement and care responsibility to the receiving State's title IV-B/IV-E agency, does the "clock" re-start for determining when the case review requirements or reasonable efforts to finalize a permanency plan are due?

Section 475(5)(I) of the Social Security Act (the Act) expands the case review system to require the title IV-B/IV-E agency to provide birth certificates, Social Security cards and other documents to certain youth who age out of foster care. To whom must the title IV-B/IV-E agency provide these documents?
