Income Withholding

Responsibilities

Upon receipt of an Order/Notice to Withhold Income for Child Support or Notice of an Order to Withhold Income for Child Support, an employer is considered to have been officially notified to begin income withholding from the employee named and to remit the amount withheld.

To comply with the Order/Notice, an employer will do the following:

  • Begin withholding for child support no later than the first pay period that occurs after the date the Order/Notice is received.
  • Deduct child support on the regular pay dates, similar to deductions for FICA and federal income tax withholding.
  • Submit payments to the address specified in the Order/Notice on the pay date or for payments made by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), transmit payments no later than the second business day after the pay date.
  • Withhold according to the terms of the Order/Notice until otherwise notified.
