ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR EMPLOYERS/INCOME WITHHOLDERS
State-specific contact and withholding information can be found on the Federal Employer Services website located at
www.acf.hhs.gov/css/resource/state-income-withholding-contacts-and-program-requirements.
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.
Reporting the Pay Date: You must report the pay date when sending the payment. The pay date is the date on which the
amount was withheld from the employee/obligor’s wages. You must comply with the law of the state (or tribal law if
applicable) of the employee/obligor’s principal place of employment regarding time periods within which you must
implement the withholding and forward the support payments.
Multiple IWOs: If there is more than one IWO against this employee/obligor and you are unable to fully honor all IWOs
due to federal, state, or tribal withholding limits, you must honor all IWOs to the greatest extent possible, giving priority to
current support before payment of any past-due support. Follow the state or tribal law/procedure of the employee/obligor’s
principal place of employment to determine the appropriate allocation method.
Lump Sum Payments: You may be required to notify a state or tribal CSE agency of upcoming lump sum payments to
this employee/obligor such as bonuses, commissions, or severance pay. Contact the sender to determine if you are
required to report and/or withhold lump sum payments.
Liability: If you have any doubts about the validity of this IWO, contact the sender. If you fail to withhold income from the
employee/obligor’s income as the IWO directs, you are liable for both the accumulated amount you should have withheld
and any penalties set by state or tribal law/procedure.
Anti-discrimination: You are subject to a fine determined under state or tribal law for discharging an employee/obligor
from employment, refusing to employ, or taking disciplinary action against an employee/obligor because of this IWO.
Withholding Limits: You may not withhold more than the lesser of: 1) the amounts allowed by the Federal Consumer
Credit Protection Act (CCPA) [15 USC §1673(b)]; or 2) the amounts allowed by the law of the state of the
employee/obligor’s principal place of employment, if the place of employment is in a state; or tribal law of the
employee/obligor’s principal place of employment if the place of employment is under tribal jurisdiction. Disposable income
is the net income after mandatory deductions such as: state, federal, local taxes; Social Security taxes; statutory pension
contributions; and Medicare taxes. The federal limit is 50% of the disposable income if the obligor is supporting another
family and 60% of the disposable income if the obligor is not supporting another family. However, those limits increase 5%
- to 55% and 65% - if the arrears are greater than 12 weeks. If permitted by the state or tribe, you may deduct a fee for
administrative costs. The combined support amount and fee may not exceed the limit indicated in this section.
Depending upon applicable state or tribal law, you may need to consider amounts paid for health care premiums in
determining disposable income and applying appropriate withholding limits.
Arrears greater than 12 weeks? If the Order Information section does not indicate that the arrears are greater than 12
weeks, then the employer should calculate the CCPA limit using the lower percentage.
Supplemental Information: Oregon withholders for additional information, see the attached “Information for Withholders
in Oregon”.

You must start withholding no later than the first pay period occurring five (5) days after the date of the Income
Withholding Order/Notice for Support (IWO). However, if on the date you receive the IWO, you have already
calculated the payroll for the pay period and prepared the paycheck or submitted a deposit for that payroll, you
will start withholding no later than the second pay period which occurs after the date of the IWO.

Tracking Document ID OMB 0970-0154
What if an obligor has more than one withholding or garnishment?
Under Oregon law a child support withholding order has priority over any other legal process against the same
income. When you comply, you cannot be held liable to the obligor or any other person for wrongful
withholding.
[ORS 25.375; ORS 25.424]
Withholding for the IWO might reduce or eliminate other payments under a writ of continuing garnishment
including State tax garnishments. You may want to contact the entity that sent the garnishment for further
instructions.
[ORS Ch. 18]
How should I send child support payments?
Oregon employers and employers with registered agents in Oregon who are required to remit support
payments to the Department of Justice (DOJ) must remit child support payments by Electronic Funds Transfer
(EFT).
[OAR 137-055-5035]
What if I need to send child support payments to Oregon for more than one obligor?
You may combine amounts from more than one obligor's incomes in a single payment to the Department of
Justice (DOJ). You must include a list that identifies the payment for each obligor and includes each obligor’s
name, case identifier(s), date the payment was withheld.
[ORS 25.411]
What if I do not withhold support in a certain month?
If you do not withhold support in any month, you must notify DOJ of the reason on the date you would normally
send a payment. This includes when the obligor is injured on the job or is receiving any disability income.
[ORS
25.421]
If I stop paying an obligor, what must I do?
You must notify DOJ promptly when the obligor stops receiving income from you for any reason (termination,
layoff, military leave or leave without pay, for example). You must provide the obligor's last known address. If
you know it, you must also provide the name and address of the obligor's new employer or source of income.
[ORS 25.421]
Do I have to withhold from lump sum payments?
If the obligor will receive a lump sum payment or benefit, you may be required to withhold from that income.
This withholding may not exceed 50% of the disposable amount of lump sum payment or benefits. If you are
paying out a lump sum payment or benefit, contact the Employer Services Central Unit (ESCU).
[ORS 25.414]
What are the penalties for not following this order?
If you do not follow the requirements of the IWO or provide an explanation, we may begin legal action against
you. The court may find you in contempt and bring sanctions against you. You may be held personally liable for
the amounts you failed to withhold. In addition, the court may fine you, charge attorney fees, or may order you
to pay damages. You may be assessed other civil penalties if you fail to obey.

Where do I find the withholding limits if my business and the obligor are not in Oregon?
If you are an employer who is doing business outside of Oregon and the obligor is not working in Oregon, the
other state’s withholding limits are listed at:
www.acf.hhs.gov/css/resource/state-income-withholding-contacts-and-program-requirements
How do I withhold from obligors receiving Federal Disability benefits or Black Lung benefits?
If the withholding is for past due support only the obligor must be left with disposable income of at least 160
times the hourly Federal Minimum Wage (FMW) per month. This may result in a withholding that is less than
the total monthly amount on the order. The FMW calculation only applies to the following types of federal
disability benefit payments:
Disability benefits from the United States Social Security Administration;
Black Lung benefits from the United States Department of Labor; or
Disability benefits from the United States Department of Veterans’ Affairs
