Employers remit about three-quarters of the total amount collected to pay child support and medical support orders through payroll deductions. By remitting this income and reporting new hires, terminations, and wage and health benefits, employers provide crucial services to help support the financial stability of children and families. Employers are essential partners with the child support program.
Find information, calculators, forms, and videos to help navigate the federal and state requirements for employers to comply with child support. Employers can also call the New York State Child Support Helpline for assistance at 888-208-4485.
On Wednesday, June 2022, we held our free half-day online conference, which gave everyone from payroll managers to individual business owners the tools they need to meet their legal obligations to the child support program while also serving the needs of their employees and their families. This conference gave employers practical guidance on such topics as reporting new hires and processing income-withholding orders and medical support orders.
We are planning our next conference for December 2022. Please check back for the date and registration information.
Below are the links to the recorded presentations and the slides from June 2022. The Questions & Answers from the December 2021 session are also available.
