Clawback for Child Support Payments Ends

Clawback for Child Support Payments Ends

Postby CLS » Fri Jan 13, 2017 8:01 pm

Effective February 1, 2017, child support payments will be fully exempt from OW benefit calculations. Also, because child support will no longer be taken into consideration when calculating benefits, the obligation to pursue child support payments will also be eliminated for purposes of OW eligibility.

This much-anticipated change means that more families will be able to keep more income to help support their families--a bit of good news at last!
