Financial Institutions

Financial institutions that do business in more than one state and elect not to match with each state participate in OCSE’s Multistate Financial Institution Data Match (MSFIDM) program. We match with these multistate financial institutions to identify accounts belonging to parents who owe past-due support. A match allows the child support agency to freeze and seize the account. Contact us about MSFIDM.

OCSE also operates the Federally Assisted State Transmitted (FAST) Levy program, which supports electronic exchanges of lien and levy requests and responses between child support agencies and financial institutions. This centralized, standard, electronic process reduces expenses and expedites the receipt of child support collections. See the FAST Levy Overview for more information.
