It also indicates your preferences regarding mailing pre-offset notices, holding periods, and contact information.

The attachment requires your signature as IV-D Director (or your designee). Please send the signed letter on your state’s official letterhead to the Federal Collections Team at scollections@acf.hhs.gov no later than September 30, 2020.
