Partnership with Employer Community Results in Child Support Program SuccessThe partnership between employers and the child support community ensures millions of families consistently receive child support. Every day, employers submit information about newly hired employees, implement income withholding orders and enroll children in health insurance plans. In federal fiscal year 2010, employers withheld over 67% of the child support collected and reported 47 million new hires.
Additional Opportunity for Employers to Help Families Receive Support
The federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) encourages employers that are self-funded or self-insured for workers’ compensation to participate in our insurance match program. In 2006, Congress passed legislation that authorizes OCSE to compare information concerning individuals owing past-due child support with information maintained by insurers (or their agents) concerning insurance claims, settlements, awards and payments. OCSE furnishes information resulting from the data matches to the state child support (CS) agencies responsible for collecting child support. The legislation also includes a non-liability provision for insurers participating in the data match with OCSE. As of October 2011, 24 of the 53 states and territories participating in OCSE’s insurance match program reported nearly $8 million in child support collections.
