Does Zenefits remit child support garnishments?
Zenefits is happy to help with remitting some child support garnishments. Garnishment remittance can vary from state to state, so we've provided the chart below. We included links to the state agency and listed their requirements.
To see if Zenefits can remit payments on your company's behalf, take the following steps.
- Ensure that the jurisdiction is supported through the worker's Pay Template (the People section of the Payroll app).
- Check if payments can be enabled using the chart below.
- If reaching out to the jurisdiction for registration is required in the chart below, make sure to do this before enabling payments.
- Once registration with the jurisdiction has been completed, return to the worker's Pay Template and select Yes to Reconciliation with issuing agency complete?
- Then you can switch Service Level to Payment Enabled*
*If unable to switch from Calculation Only to Payment Enabled, then Zenefits cannot assist with remitting for this agency at this time.
How do I register my company with the agency?
You can do this by reaching out to the agency using the contact information on the order. If there's no contact information on the order, you can find contact information on the state website linked below.
How do I register each order?
Some states need you to register every order. First, the agency will confirm information is correct in both systems. Then they'll give you an identification number.
The garnishment identification number will connect the payment with the correct recipient. This is why it's important that all fields are accurately entered.
Registration process varies by agency. You may want to contact them before completing the setup process in Zenefits.
What's a required case identifier?
Zenefits has worked with each agency to determine which case identifier they use. The Required Case Identifier column will align with the required field in Zenefits.
Please note that some agencies maintain information at a county level, not a state level. If there is a discrepancy between what Zenefits says and what they agency asks for, go with the agency.
For example, if Zenefits asks for a 10 digit REMIT ID but you contact the agency and they ask for a 6 digit REMIT ID, enter the 6 digit REMIT ID in Zenefits.
Internal Support Notes
This product is currently in BETA. Only certain states are being supported as we ensure our payments system functions- we don't want any uncertainties surrounding child support payments! No company can sign up for Child Support garnishment payments to be remitted without being on the BETA list. If an admin tries to tell you that they have successfully set this up, check to see if they are on the BETA list. There is a level of service question in the Garnishment setup flow- this will be locked to Calculation Only if they are not included in the BETA.
If you receive a question or request from a company to be added to the Child Support Garnishments BETA, please route the case to Time and Pay Specialists using the Standardized Case Notes Template.
