Electronic Resources for Managing Child Support Income Withholding Orders

BY: APA Staff | 02/28/19

The federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) offers organizations a variety of online applications to help employers meet their responsibilities.

The OCSE Child Support Portal provides a central location for organizations to:

  • update addresses, subsidiaries, points of contact, and supplemental information
  • report an employee’s termination or that the person never worked for you
  • notify nearly all states at one time about upcoming lump-sum payments

If you are an employer with employees in more than one state, you can also register to report all new and rehired employees to a single state where you have employees.

To access the Portal, email the OCSE Employer Services team at [email protected] for a demonstration or to begin the registration process. 

Are you receiving your child support orders electronically? 

You can learn more about automating the Income Withholding for Support (IWO) form and making the process convenient, accurate, and fast with electronic income withholding orders (e-IWO). Email the OCSE e-IWO team at [email protected] for more information or to begin the registration process.
