Notice to Employer / Source of Income
Payment Remittance

Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring that our children receive the child support and medical support they need and deserve. In order for the BCSE to quickly and efficiently process these payments, we are providing some additional information that may assist you with your remittances. WV Code requires that amounts withheld for child support payments be remitted to the BCSE on the same day that the employee is paid. There is certain information that is required to be submitted with the payments to ensure they are credited to the correct employer and employee. For a blank wage transmittal form, click here. Whether you submit your payments by check or Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), the BCSE must have the appropriate identifying information.

Checks and Other Banking Instruments

If you remit payment in this manner, you may use the Employer Wage Transmittal form sent to you monthly. It contains a list of your employees that the BCSE shows as subject to income withholding. It also contains the necessary information to post a payment.

If you choose not to use the Employer Wage Transmittal to remit payments, you must include the following information with your payments for each employee whose income is being withheld:

  • Your Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN)
  • Employee name and social security number
  • Case number
  • Amount withheld for each employee
  • Withholding date (usually the date employee is paid)
  • Employee date of last pay

The above information can be obtained from the income withholding notice.

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

EFT is the electronic exchange of money without the use of paper checks or currency. EFT can provide your company savings in operating costs such as postage, mail time, paperwork reduction and accuracy.

If you choose to remit via EFT, there are required specifications for transmitting child support payments that include the necessary information for us to post the payments electronically. We are able to accept EFT payments in the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) CCD+ and CTX formats.

Please contact the WV Bureau for Child Support Enforcement at (304) 558-1134 or toll-free (800) 835-4683 for more information.
