G.S. 108A-11

Members of the county board of social services are authorized to “inspect and examine” any record of the county social services department relating to applications for or provision of public assistance or social services under G.S. Chapter 108A. Social services board members, however, are expressly prohibited from disclosing or making public any information they acquire through examining these records.
The Attorney General’s office has issued two opinions concluding that G.S. 108A-11 does not apply to child abuse, neglect, and dependency or child support enforcement case files maintained by the county social services department.
