This presentation shows employers and insurers how to input and upload data on upcoming payments to the Debt Inquiry Service.  The Debt Inquiry Service (DIS) is a way to report lump sums and claims payments to state child support agencies before the payments occur.  The uploaded data is matched against a national database of those owing overdue child support payments.  Matches are reported to state child support agencies who will then contact the employer or insurer to explain how much to withhold.  Payments are then sent to the child support agency to forward to the families and children needing support.
