Start Preamble

Title: Information Comparison with Insurance Data.

OMB No.: 0970-0342.

Description

The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 amended Section 452 of the Social Security Act (the Act) to authorize the Secretary, through the Federal Parent Locator Service (FPLS), to conduct comparisons of information concerning individuals owing past-due child support with information maintained by insurers (or their agents) concerning insurance claims, settlements, awards, and payments. Public Law 109-171, § 7306. The Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) operates the FPLS in accordance with section 453(a)(1) of the Act. The Federal Case Registry of Child Support Orders (FCR) is maintained in the FPLS in accordance with section 453(h)(1) of the Act.

At the option of an insurer, the comparison may be accomplished by either of the following methods. Under the first method, an insurer or the insurer's agent will submit to OCSE information concerning claims, settlements, awards, and payments. OCSE will compare that information with information pertaining to individuals owing past-due support.

Under the second method, OCSE will furnish to the insurer or the insurer's agent a file containing information pertaining to individuals owing past-due support. The insurer or the insurer's agent will compare that information with information pertaining to claims, settlements, awards, and payments. The insurer will furnish the information resulting from the comparison to OCSE.

On a daily basis OCSE will furnish the results of the comparison by transmitting the Insurance Match Response Record to the state agencies responsible for collecting past-due child support from the individuals. The results of the comparison will be used by the state agencies to collect past-due child support from the insurance proceeds.
