End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


Description: State child support enforcement agencies are statutorily required to enter into data matching agreements with financial institutions doing business in their state to locate obligors' accounts. OCSE operates the MSFIDM program through the Federal Parent Locator Service (FPLS) and facilitates the required data match between state child support agencies and financial institutions doing business in multiple states. State child support enforcement agencies use the data match outcomes to fulfill a statutory requirement to seize an obligor's assets to satisfy overdue child support payments.

OCSE also operates FAST Levy, which is an automated application within the FPLS to exchange electronic lien/levy information securely and efficiently. State child support enforcement agencies and multistate financial institutions (MSFIs) use FAST Levy to seize financial assets more quickly and efficiently.

Respondents: MSFIs and state child support agencies.
