Electronic Funds Transfer/Electronic Data Interchange (EFT/EDI) make child support income withholding easier for employers. At your option, child support funds can be electronically remitted via EFT from your bank to the State Disbursement Unit. All the necessary information (case identifiers, date of withholding, etc.) is sent along with the electronic payments via EDI.
For additional information concerning EFT/EDI, please visit Mississippi Department of Human Services website to obtain a PDF version of A Guide for Employer Electronic Funds Transfer/Electronic Data Interchange (EFT/EDI) or contact us at (769)777-6111.
New Lump Sum Payment Module!
The Mississippi Department of Human Services has launched a new automated lump sum payment module - a quick, easy to use, and timely tool designed to help employers meet and retain compliance with lump sum payment reporting requirements.
We would like to make you aware of your responsibility to report lump sum payments on behalf of employees to Mississippi's State Directory of New Hires prior to distribution.
Lump sum payments are considered employee income and thereby are subject to withholding to collect past due child support. Employers that have received an income withholding order that includes an amount for past due support are required to comply with the instructions outlined therein.
Please refer to the Mississippi Lump Sum Employer Guide
where you will find additional information about Mississippi's lump sum payment reporting requirements.
Employers must also report rehires, or employees who return to work after 60 days of being laid off, furloughed, separated, granted a leave without pay or terminated from employment. Employers must also report:
- Recalled employees
- Anyone who remains on the payroll during a break in service or gap in pay and then returns to work (this includes teachers, substitutes, seasonal workers, etc.)
