FY 2011 Child Support Program Highlights

The Office of Child Support Preliminary Report highlights financial and statistical program achievements based on quarterly and annual data.  In fiscal year (FY) 2011 information was compiled from State and Tribal-submitted reports on program status sent to the federal government.

Note: The Child Support Performance and Incentive Act of 1998 (CSPIA) required the States to have complete and reliable data for purposes of computing incentives. Federal auditors begin their review of State data after the mandatory December 31st deadline for data submission. Readers should note that no determination or assumption has been made in this report regarding data reliability for each State for fiscal year 2011. The numbers are presented as submitted to OCSE.

SMALL DECREASE IN TOTAL IV-D CASELOAD AFTER TWO YEARS OF INCREASING CASELOADS

Caseload: There were 15.8 million total cases in the IV-D program as of the end of FY 2011. This was a small decrease (0.2 percent) from FY 2010. However, the caseload remains higher than FY 2009 and prior years. This drop was driven primarily by a 7 percent decrease in the current assistance caseload. There were small increases in the former assistance (0.1 percent), and never assistance (1.8 percent) caseloads.

TOTAL CHILD SUPPORT COLLECTIONS ARE UP 3 PERCENT

Collections: In FY 2011, the Child Support Program began to see signs of improvement in the rate of increase in collections after two years of depressed collections. Total IV-D distributed collections increased by 3 percent to $27.3 billion in FY 2011, above the FY 2008 pre-recession high, compared to $26.6 billion in FY 2010, $26.4 in FY 2009, and $26.6 billion in FY 2008. During the three-year period between FY 2008 and FY 2011, total child support collections increased by 3 percent, compared to an increase of 16 percent during the prior three years between FY 2005 and FY 2008. The amount of collections distributed to families also increased by 3 percent; the proportion of collections going to families was 94 percent. In addition to the increase in IV-D collections, there was an increase in collections sent to non IV-D families. The non IV-D collections increased by 1 percent over FY 2010 to $3.9 billion. In total, IV-D and non IV-D collections increased to over 31 billion in FY 2011.

INCREASE IN COLLECTIONS FROM INCOME WITHHOLDING DRIVES INCREASE IN TOTAL COLLECTIONS

Chart 3 indicates the largest proportion of collections (over two-thirds) was from income withholding, particularly payroll-based withholding. These collections were up 4 percent in FY 2011. This reverses the previous trend of decreases in these collections. In FY 2011, there was also a change in the trend of collections from the offset of unemployment compensation payments. During the recent recession, there was dramatic growth in these collections. These collections increased by more than 4 times over the period between FY 2007 and FY 2010. In FY 2011, these collections decreased by 24 percent. In addition to improved employment conditions, enhanced federal enforcement is playing a larger role in helping to maintain collections. Collections coming directly from the various federal programs including Federal Offset, SSA Garnishments, Multi-State Financial Institution Data Match, Passport Denial Program, National Directory of New Hires-FCR Match, and Insurance Match, have increased by 2 percent in FY 2010, and 10 percent in FY 2011. These collections represented 11 percent of total IV-D and non IV-D child support collections in FY 2009, 11.2 percent in FY 2010, and in FY 2011 these collections were $3.73 billion and accounted for 12 percent of the total IV-D and non IV-D support collections.

While the overall performance picture improved slightly in FY 2011, the data continue to show signs of weakness, particularly among the lowest-income families in the caseload. The percentage of “enforcement-ready” cases with support orders that had collections has declined across the board since FY 2008, with the sharpest declines in current and former assistance cases. The percentage of current assistance cases with orders that had collections declined from 59.5 percent in FY 2008 to 56.9 percent in FY 2011 and the percentage of former assistance cases with orders that had collections declined from 68.0 percent to 65.4 percent. The percentage of never assistance cases with orders that had collections declined more modestly, from 80.0 percent to 78.6 percent.

TOTAL ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENDITURES CONTINUE TO DROP FOR THIRD YEAR IN A ROW

Expenditures: In FY 2011, total administrative expenditures were $5.7 billion, a 2 percent decrease from the previous year. A comparison of the three-year rate shows that program expenditures have steadily declined for the last 3 years. The FY 2011 data show that overall expenditures have declined by 4 percent since FY 2008, compared to an increase of 10 percent between FY 2005 and FY 2008. It is important to note significant state-by-state variations in state spending levels and budget circumstances. In two states, overall expenditures have declined by 20 percent or more since FY 2008. In addition, FY 2011 saw a shift in funding from the federal government to states. The federal share of expenditures decreased by 9 percent in FY 2011, as the funding reduction provision included in the Deficit Reduction Act of 2006 went into effect. The state share of expenditures had increased by 11 percent.

Despite the decrease in overall expenditures, there was a significant increase (28 percent) in automated data processing expenditures, reversing the two-year trend of decreasing expenditures. Even with this increase, these expenditures are 22 percent less than the pre-recession amount expended. The number of full-time-equivalent staff continue to decrease. The number of staff down 2 percent in FY 2011, down 3.1 percent in FY 2010, and down 2.5 percent in FY 2009, for a total decrease 7.6 percent after remaining at approximately the same level for several years.

The cost-effectiveness ratio increased to $5.12, primarily attributable to declines in program expenditures due to budget shortfalls rather than increases in collections. There also is some indication that states used American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds on short-term technology projects to increase efficiency in the program. These reinvestments are part of a decade-long trend in increased program cost-effectiveness.

TRIBAL CHILD SUPPORT COLLECTIONS INCREASE 17 PERCENT IN FY 2011

Tribal Child Support: In FY 2011, there were 42 comprehensive Tribal Child Support Programs, most of which have been in operation for 4 years or less.These tribes’ programs collected over $36 million in child support collections, a 17 percent increase from FY 2010. This total is comprised of tribal distributed collections which increased to over 30 million and another 6 million in collections that tribes send to other tribes or states. There were three new comprehensive tribes added in FY 2011. So, almost all of the increase in tribal collections was the result of increased collections in existing Tribal programs.

The attached tables and charts provide further preliminary detail regarding collections, expenditures, caseload, paternities, orders established, and other program statistics related to both State and Tribal Child Support Programs for FY 2011 and for some prior years.

The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 allowed states to certify nearly 1 million additional non-TANF debts in 2008 that were previously not eligible for tax refund offset. It is estimated that this resulted in at least an additional $200 million collected.

The Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 provided economic stimulus payments of up to $600 ($1,200 if filing a joint return, plus additional amounts for each qualifying child) to be made to over 130 million American households. These payments were eligible for tax refund offset and resulted in an additional $863 million in 'special collections' in 2008.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provided one-time Economic Recovery Payments (ERP) of $250 to an estimated 60 million recipients of Social Security (SSA), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Railroad Retirement Benefits (RRB) and Veterans’ Disability Compensation or Pension Benefits. These payments were eligible for administrative offset and resulted in additional 'special collections' of $111,689,930 in PY 2009 and $6,653,690 in 2010.

How an Incentive Payment is Determined

 

Because of the complexity of the incentives formula set forth in section 458 of the Social Security Act, we have included an example of how the system would work in a particular year for State A. Let’s make the following assumptions regarding State A (See Table A):

  • State A’s paternity performance level is 93 percent, making its applicable percent 100 percent (see Table C)
  • State A’s order establishment performance level is 74 percent, making its applicable percent 88 percent (see Table C)
  • State A’s current support collections performance level is 59 percent, making its applicable percent 69 percent (see Table D)
  • State A’s arrearage support collections performance level is 60 percent, making its applicable percent 70 percent (see Table D)
  • State A’s cost-effectiveness ratio is $4.40, making its applicable percent 80 percent (see Table E)
  • State A’s collections base is $50 million (determined by 2 times the collections for Current Assistance, Former Assistance, and Medicaid Never Assistance plus Never Assistance collections and fees retained by other states)
  • The maximum incentive for State A is:

    • $50 million collections base for paternity ($50 mil. times 1.00), plus
    • $44 million collections base for orders ($50 mil. times 0.88), plus
    • $34.5 million collections base for current collections ($50 mil. times 0.69), plus
    • $26.25 million collections base for arrearage collections ($50 mil. times 0.751 times 0.70) plus
    • $30.0 million collections base for cost-effectiveness ($50 million times 0.751 times 0.80) equals
    • Resulting in a maximum incentive base amount of $184.75 million for State A.

Cost-Effectiveness $4.40 80% 0.75 $30,000,000
State A’s Maximum Incentive Base Amount       $184,750,000

 

We must now make some assumptions regarding the other States. Let’s assume that there are only two other States in our country--and the maximum incentive base amount is $84 million for State B and $50 million for State C, making the total maximum incentive base amount $318.75 million for all three States (See Table B).

  • We must now determine what is State A’s share of the $318.75 million. It is 58 percent ($184.75 divided by $318.75).

C $50,000,000 0.16 $72,313,725
Totals $318,750,000 1.00 $461,000,000

 

  • Let us assume it is FY 2003, so the incentive payment pool for the FY is $461 million (see table F).
  • Since State A’s share is 0.58, this state has earned 58 percent of the $461 million incentive payment pool that Congress is allowing, or $267.2 million ($461 mil. x 0.58) incentive payment for this particular fiscal year.

Table F - Incentive Pool Payment, FY 2001-2011

The incentive payment pool is:

  • $429,000,000 for fiscal year 2001
  • $450,000,000 for fiscal year 2002
  • $461,000,000 for fiscal year 2003
  • $454,000,000 for fiscal year 2004
  • $446,000,000 for fiscal year 2005
  • $458,000,000 for fiscal year 2006
  • $471,000,000 for fiscal year 2007
  • $483,000,000 for fiscal year 2008
  • $504,000,000 for fiscal year 2009
  • $504,000,000 for fiscal year 2010
  • $513,000,000 for fiscal year 2011

The incentive payment pool after FY 2008 is the amount of the incentive payment pool for the preceding FY, multiplied by the percentage by which the CPI for that preceding FY exceeds the CPI for the second preceding FY.

The CPI for a FY is the average of the CPI for the 12 month period ending on Sept. 30 of the FY. The CPI means the last CPI for all-urban consumers published by the United States Department of Labor. The NOT seasonally adjusted CPI numbers are used.

The percentage increase between the preceding FY (FY 2008) and second preceding FY (FY 2007) is about 4.44%.   So, $483 million (the FY 2008 incentive pool amount) plus 4.44% equals about $504 million (the FY 2009 incentive pool amount).  The FY 2011 incentive pool amount ($513 million) was established by the budget submitted by the Office of Legislative Affairs and Budget (OLAB).
