Child Support Seminars to Be Offered to Employers
Treasurer Stenberg Encourages Employers to Submit Payments Electronically

Seminars for employers who make child support payments on behalf of their employees have been scheduled by the Nebraska Child Support Payment Center, a division of the Nebraska State Treasurer’s Office, in conjunction with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. This is the 11th year the seminars have been offered.

The free, one-hour seminars are offered in communities across Nebraska. Subjects to be covered include new hire reporting, income and medical withholding, employee verification and termination, and electronic payments. The seminars are designed for department managers in human resources and payroll.

“The seminars are an excellent way for employers to learn more about how to submit child support payments electronically,” State Treasurer Don Stenberg said. “Electronic payments make good business sense and leave less room for error. They eliminate the cost of printing and handling paper checks and the data entry associated with paper checks. They also reduce postal costs for the employers and for the State of Nebraska. What’s more, an electronic payment has never been lost in our system.”

More than 78 percent of child support payments sent by employers to the Nebraska Child Support Payment Center in 2013 were sent electronically, totaling more than $189 million, Stenberg said. He said he would like to see that percentage go even higher.

In all, more than $294.5 million was sent to the Child Support Payment Center from employers and individuals for child support in 2013.

Employers may register for the seminars by calling 402-471-1173 or toll free at 877-631-9973, Option 3, or by contacting Registration is required.
