Since 1987, employers have been a vital part of Ohio's success in increasing child support collections through income withholding. Almost three-quarters of the $1.9 billion collected by Ohio's child support program each year is received through income withholding.
Employers have four basic responsibilities in the child support operation. They are:
- Reporting new hires and responding to employment verification requests
- Withholding income and premiums for medical insurance
- Sending payments to Ohio CSPC
- Reporting employment terminations with existing orders
These areas are covered in subsequent sections of this site. The continued cooperation of Ohio employers in withholding wages and medical premiums pursuant to child support orders, as well as reporting newly hired employees, will go a long way toward supporting Ohio's and the nation's children.
