Title: Form OCSE-396A: Financial Report; Form OCSE-34A: Quarterly Report of Collections.

OMB No.: 0970-0181.

Description: Each State agency administering the Child Support Enforcement Program under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act is required to provide information to the Office of Child Support Enforcement concerning its administrative expenditures and its receipt and disposition of child support payment from non-custodial parents. These quarterly reporting forms enable each State to provide that information, which is used to compute both the quarterly grants awarded to each State and the annual incentive payments earned by each State. This information is also included in a published annual statistical and financial report, which is available to the general public.

Respondents: State agencies administering the Child Support Enforcement Program.
