We partner with the insurance industry and state child support agencies to conduct the federal insurance match as a way to help states collect child support.  Congress passed legislation in 2006 that authorizes us to compare information about individuals who owe past-due support with payee information on in-process insurance claims, settlements, and awards.

We conduct the match with insurance companies or their designated agents, state workers’ compensation agencies, and the U.S. Department of Labor.  We send the match results to the state agencies responsible for collecting past-due child support.  All states except Minnesota participate in our Insurance Match.

For more information about the Insurance Match program, contact insurancematch@acf.hhs.gov.

For questions about your specific child support case, contact your state or local child support office. For general child support information, see our Families page.
