Employer Resources
     Income Withholding

Employers collect nearly 70 percent of all child support through income withholding orders. Effective May 31, 2012, sections 466(a)(1), (a)(8) and 466(b)(6) of the Social Security Act  require the use of the Income Withholding for Support (IWO) form in all cases in which a court has ordered a parent to pay child support by income withholding.

Private attorneys and courts authorized under state law to issue IWOs must use the federally approved IWO form for all child support income withholding by employers. Non-custodial parents who wish to have income withheld from their paycheck voluntarily must also use the income withholding form.
