Description: The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 amended Section 452 of the Social Security 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. The two options to participate in the Information Comparison with Insurance Data program are (1) insurers submit information concerning claims, settlements, awards, and payments to the federal OCSE. OCSE compares it to information pertaining to parents who owe past-due support. (2) OCSE will send a file containing information about parents who owe past-due support to the insurer, or their agent, to compare with their claims, settlements, awards, and payments. The insurer or their agent sends any resulting insurance data matches to OCSE. On a daily basis, OCSE sends the results of the insurance data match in an “Insurance Match Response Record” to child support agencies responsible for collecting past-due support. The child support agencies use the insurance data matches to collect past-due support from the insurance proceeds.
Respondents: Insurers or their agents, including the U.S. Department of Labor and state agencies administering workers' compensation programs, and the Insurance Services Office.
