ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR EMPLOYERS/INCOME WITHHOLDERS
State-specific contact and withholding information can be found on the Federal Employer Services website located at
Employers/income withholders may use OCSE's Child Support Portal (https://ocsp.acf.hhs.gov/csp/) to provide
information about employees who are eligible to receive a lump sum payment, have terminated employment, and to
provide contacts, addresses, and other information about their company.
Priority: Withholding for support has priority over any other legal process under State law against the same income
(section 466(b)(7) of the Social Security Act). If a federal tax levy is in effect, please notify the sender.
Combining Payments: When remitting payments to an SDU or tribal CSE agency, you may combine withheld amounts
from more than one employee/obligor's income in a single payment. You must, however, separately identify each
employee/obligor's portion of the payment.
Payments To SDU: You must send child support payments payable by income withholding to the appropriate SDU or to a
tribal CSE agency. If this IWO instructs you to send a payment to an entity other than an SDU (e.g., payable to the
custodial party, court, or attorney), you must check the box above and return this notice to the sender. Exception: If this
IWO was sent by a court, attorney, or private individual/entity and the initial order was entered before January 1, 1994 or
the order was issued by a tribal CSE agency, you must follow the “Remit payment to” instructions on this form.
