OMB No.: 0970–0154. Description: All individuals and entities must use a standard form the PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Secretary of HHS developed to notify employers to withhold child support for all IV–D and non-IV–D orders. This clearance is for one-time changes to the IWO form by state child support agencies and entities that do not have child support automated systems. The Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) requires child support automated systems to be able to automatically generate and download data to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved IWO form. The collection of information required by state child support agencies and courts to populate IWOs in automated systems is contained in OMB #0970–0417 and is not addressed in this clearance. If the state child support agency established the child support orders, necessary information is already contained in the automated system for populating income withholding orders. If a court or other tribunal issued a child support order, then IV–D agency staff enter the terms of the order into the automated system to issue IWOs. Copies of the IWO are made for all necessary parties and state child support agencies transmit IWOs to the employer/income withholder by mail or through the OCSE electronic income withholding order (eIWO) portal. Employers are required to inform state child support agencies when employees with child support IWOs terminate their employment; notification occurs by sending the IWO form or by the e-IWO process. Employer responses to IWOs are covered by this clearance. Custodial parties (CPs) may send the IWO form to an employer directly or may engage an attorney or private collection agency to do so on their behalf. This clearance addresses custodial parties as they do not have access to automated systems for non-IV– D orders. The IWO form and instructions were updated for consistency and clarity in light of numerous comments suggesting changes received during the 60-day comment period of the 1st Federal Register Notice publication. The information collection is authorized by 42 U.S.C. 666(a)(8)(B)(iii) and (b)(6)(A)(ii) which requires the use of a standard format for income withholding.

    Title: Income Withholding for Support Order (IWO).
    OMB No.: 0970-0154.
    Description: All individuals and entities must use a standard form 
the Secretary of HHS developed to notify employers to withhold child 
support for all IV-D and non-IV-D orders. This clearance is for one-
time changes to the IWO form by state child support agencies and 
entities that do not have child support automated systems.
    The Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) requires child 
support automated systems to be able to automatically generate and 
download data to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved IWO 
form. The collection of information required by state child support 
agencies and courts to populate IWOs in automated systems is contained 
in OMB 0970-0417 and is not addressed in this clearance. If 
the state child support agency established the child support orders, 
necessary information is already contained in the automated system for 
populating income withholding orders. If a court or other tribunal 
issued a child support order, then IV-D agency staff enter the terms of 
the order into the automated system to issue IWOs. Copies of the IWO 
are made for all necessary parties and state child support agencies 
transmit IWOs to the employer/income withholder by mail or through the 
OCSE electronic income withholding order (e-IWO) portal. Employers are 
required to inform state child support agencies when employees with 
child support IWOs terminate their employment; notification occurs by 
sending the IWO form or by the e-IWO process. Employer responses to 
IWOs are covered by this clearance.
    Custodial parties (CPs) may send the IWO form to an employer 
directly or may engage an attorney or private collection agency to do 
so on their behalf. This clearance addresses custodial parties as they 
do not have access to automated systems for non-IV-D orders.
    The IWO form and instructions were updated for consistency and 
clarity in light of numerous comments suggesting changes received 
during the 60-day comment period of the 1st Federal Register Notice 
publication.
    The information collection is authorized by 42 U.S.C. 
666(a)(8)(B)(iii) and (b)(6)(A)(ii) which requires the use of a 
standard format for income withholding.
    Respondents: Employers, non-IV-D custodial parties, and e-IWO 
employers.
