Yes. There are two options for remitting income withholding payments electronically.
- Web EFT - Login and authorize payments for your employees. There is no cost and no programming required.
- Electronic Funds Transfer/Electronic Data Interchange (EFT/EDI). EFT is the transfer of funds and EDI is the transfer of data. The data is used by Child Support to post income withholding payments. With this method, employers use their own software to initiate payments in a batch format. This method is preferred by larger employers. Contact Child Support to learn more.
No. All child support payments go to the same bank account. It's important that remittance information accompany payments so Child Support can properly post to each individual. If electronic payments get commingled, Child Support would have no way to determine how much money should be applied to each individual's case.
Any employer located within the United States can remit payments electronically. Employers located in any foreign country cannot use this method to remit payments.
