Proposed Projects

Title: Schedule UDC: “Itemized Undistributed Collections”.

OMB No.: New Collection.

Description: Although state child support enforcement agencies successfully collect and distribute billions of dollars every fiscal year, a certain portion of the collections remain undistributed. State agencies have requested a methodology by which to differentiate and report to the Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) on the nature of those collections. In some instances collections remain undistributed for a short time, pending the anticipated resolution of an assortment of administrative or legal processes, while in other instances collections remain undistributed for an indefinite time as a result of circumstances beyond the control of the state agency. This support schedule, which will be submitted quarterly as an attachment to Form OCSE-34A, the “Quarterly Report of Collections,” will enable each state to differentiate and itemize its undistributed collections by category and age.

Respondents: State IV-D agencies administering the Child Support Enforcement Program under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act.Start Printed Page 58111
