Proposed Projects

Title: Financial Institution Data Match.

OMB No. 0970-0196.

Description: Section 466(a)(17) of the Social Security Act (the Act), requires states to establish procedures under which the state child support enforcement (IV-D) agency shall enter into agreements with financial institutions doing business in the state for the purpose of securing information leading to the enforcement of child support orders. Under 452(1) of the Act, financial institutions doing business in multiple states may comply by centrally matching through the Federal Parent Locator Service rather than matching in each state in which the financial institution conducts business.

Respondents: Financial institutions doing business in two or more states.
