Child Support Payments for Your Employees

Employers

YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO PAY ELECTRONICALLY
Indiana Code, Section 31-16-15-16 requires employers with fifty (50) or more employees and more than one child support obligor to process those payments electronically to the State Central Collection Unit. This law went into effect July 1st 2002.

If you receive a new income withholding order that does not provide the ISETS case number, please contact the Employer Hotline at 800-292-0403. We will provide you with the case number.

LUMP SUMS
Employers, did you know that you can send a list of employees with child support orders to the Employer Maintenance Unit to get arrearage totals for Bonus/Lump sum payments?

Create a list of employees you pay child support for, send it to the Employer Maintenance Unit (EMU) and they will provide arrearage figures where applicable. If you are sending your list of employees with child support orders for the arrearage totals, please send it via email at emu@dcs.in.gov or via fax at 317-234-4767.

To understand lump sum payments more fully, please check out the FAQs on the website.

Free ACH Online

Using the Child Support Bureau's payment processing website is a FREE and easy way to comply with this law. Even if you're not required to process payments by EFT in accordance with the law, using the employer payment website is very beneficial and all you need is the Internet to use it.
You save postage. Payments don't get lost or delayed by the post office. In many cases, using the website for payment processing saves the employer processing time and by eliminating mail time, the custodial parent receives payments faster. All Indiana income withholding child support payments can be processed on the website. You no longer have to send payments to several different County Clerks. You will know the exact day your payments start processing on our system. The payments are automatically downloaded into the Indiana Support Enforcement Tracking System (ISETS) from the website with no manual processing. Payment histories for each employee and the employer are available on the website for all payments processed on the website.
