The state of California requires businesses to register with the state and perform a case reconciliation for each employee before Zenefits can successfully remit child support garnishment payments.  To complete registration & reconciliation for California Electronic Child Support Payments, please follow the steps below:

  1. Complete the attached Enrollment Form.
  2. Complete the attached California Case Reconciliation Template.
    - Please note, if you have an employee with multiple child support garnishments, enter each of them separately when completing the case reconciliation sheet.
  3. Once both forms are completed, submit them to the California State Disbursement Unit (CA SDU) using one of the methods below:
    - FAX: 888-587-5471 // ATTN: CASDU EHD
    - MAIL: Attention: EFT Unit

    IMPORTANT: Due to the sensitive nature of garnishment information, we highly recommend encrypting/password protecting your email to the state agency.
  4. CA SDU will provide the California Case Identifier employers will need to provide Zenefits to transmit the garnishment payments in a timely & accurate manner.
  5. Once you have completed the steps above, you can set up garnishments in Zenefits by following the instructions here.

For questions at any point in the registration/reconciliation process, please reach out to the CA SDU directly.
