What are employers responsible for?

Employers play a crucial role in the success of the child support program, and we appreciate your help getting children the financial support they need. By law, employers are required to:

  • Report new hires to the Missouri Department of Revenue
  • Provide salary and benefit information for specific employees to the state’s child support enforcement agency
  • Withhold income from an employee’s wages for a support order
  • Enroll an employee’s child in a health benefit plan (if allowed) and withhold the appropriate amount from the employee’s wages

How do employers send withheld income?

Please send the income you have withheld to the Family Support Division online or by mail to:

Family Support Payment Center
PO Box 109001
Jefferson City, MO 65110-9001

You can also set up the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)/Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) payment method for income withholdings by calling 888-761-6390.
