Verification of Employment

Upon request, employers must provide information to state child support agencies about employees, including employment status and information on wages, income, withholdings, and possible health insurance.  States use this information to establish and enforce child support orders.

How does an employer provide the information?

All states and territories have agreed to accept the Standard to Verification of Employment/Income form (PDF) with the exception of New York where it is still under review.

Can a third-party respond to a verification of employment?

If you use a third party for employment verifications, some states may require you to respond directly to an employment verification request instead of processing it through your third-party provider.
