New Hire Reporting

Employers are required to report information on newly hired or rehired employees. New hires reported by employers are matched against child support cases to help locate parents, establish court orders for support, or enforce existing support orders. Timely receipt of new hire data allows states to quickly issue income withholding notices. Other government programs use this data for determining individuals' eligibility for programs such as public assistance, unemployment insurance and workers' compensation and to reduce incorrect or fraudulent benefit payments.

Report new hires to the Office of Child Support (OCS) through the Michigan New Hires Operation Center at (800) 524-9846. Reporting information can be found at the Michigan New Hire Reporting website.
