Noncustodial Parent Outcomes in Paycheck Plus NYC

Published: January 23, 2019

This resource summarizes noncustodial parent outcomes from the Paycheck Plus New York City (NYC) demonstration. By offering a tax time “bonus” tied to earnings, this demonstration simulated an expanded earned income tax credit (EITC) for individuals without dependent children in order to study its effects on income and employment.

Using a random control trial, the research team found that Paycheck Plus NYC increased child support payments from participating noncustodial parents. Additional findings are summarized in the resource.

OCSE was one of the funders of this demonstration through a Section 1115 waiver to the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance.
