Social security numbers help the child support agency locate addresses and employment information. Social security numbers are shown on tax returns, pay stubs, and bank statements. Providing this useful information helps the child support agency carry out its duties more efficiently.
The child support agency makes collecting current support a priority. The child support agency also collects past-due support. Past-due support has an interest rate at 2% above the statutory judgment rate. Judgments for fees and spousal support have an interest rate at the statutory judgment rate and are not subject to the 2% additional interest rate.
If you or your children receive DWP, MinnesotaCare, MA, or Child Care Assistance, you will receive the current child support collected in the month that it is due, but you will not receive the medical and/or child care support collected for that month.
For up to the minute case and payment information, you can visit the Minnesota Child Support resource. You can also call the Child Support Payment Line at the following numbers:
If an obligor owes support to more than one family, the child support agency divides payments among the families. After current support is paid for the month it is due, other payments received that month pay past-due support.
Funds collected from federal tax refunds pay past-due support or debts. These funds may be applied to past due amounts or debts owed to the state. If the state keeps any funds, the child support agency will send you a Notice of Collection of Child Support.
