The Word is Spreading about the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement’s Insurance Match program

What’s the buzz about?! More and more insurance companies across the nation are signing up to participate in the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement’s (OCSE) Insurance Match (IM) program to benefit children and families.

In partnership with state child support enforcement (CSE) agencies and the insurance industry, OCSE designed, developed and implemented this efficient, cost effective and centralized program to compare information about individuals owing past-due support with information maintained by insurers (or their agents) concerning insurance claims, settlements, awards and payments. This is a voluntary data match program for both state CSE agencies and the insurance industry.

The program gets results! Collections voluntarily reported by 24 of the 53 state CSE agencies participating in the IM program total over $5.7 million in child support dollars! One custodial parent in Alaska received over $30,000 as a result of a collection from an insurance settlement.

How are insurance companies getting information about the program? One example is the state of California’s CSE agency working with the California Department of Insurance to send a notice to all of the insurance companies in the state to share information about the program and encourage insurer participation. Another example is an article published in the American Insurance Association’s Advocate that provided information about the benefits of participating in the IM program.

If you would like to sign up to participate or would like additional information about the program, please contact Erica Holliman at (202) 401-5730 or
