Combining Payments: You may combine withheld amounts from more than one employee/obligor’s income in a single payment to each agency/party requesting withholding. You must, however, separately identify the portion of the single payment that is attributable to each employee/obligor. Reporting the Pay Date: You must report the pay date when sending the payment. The pay date is the date on which the amount was withheld from the employee/obligor’s wages.

Employee/Obligor with Multiple Support Withholdings: If there is more than one Order/Notice against this employee/obligor and you are unable to fully honor all support Orders/Notices due to federal, State, or Tribal withholding limits, you must follow the State or Tribal law/procedure of the employee/obligor’s principal place of employment.

Disposable income is the net income left after making mandatory deductions such as: State, Federal, local taxes, Social Security taxes, statutory pension contributions and Medicare taxes. The Federal limit is 50% of the disposable income if the obligor is supporting another family and 60% of the disposable income if the obligor is not supporting another family. However, that 50% limit is increased to 55% and that 60% limit is increased to 65% if the arrears are greater than 12 weeks. If permitted by the State, you may deduct a fee for administrative costs. The support amount and the fee may not exceed the limit indicated in this section. OMB Expiration Date – 10/31/2010. The OMB Expiration Date has no bearing on the termination date or validity of the income withholding order; it identifies the version of the form currently in use. American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkflow.com Employee/Obligor’s Name: ________________________________ Case Identifier: _______________________________ Order Identifier: ______________________________ Employer’s Name: ________________________________________ Arrears greater than 12 weeks? If the Order Information does not indicate whether the arrears are greater than 12 weeks, then the employer should calculate the CCPA limit using the lower percentage. For Tribal orders, you may not withhold more than the amounts allowed under the law of the issuing Tribe. For Tribal employers who receive a State order, you may not withhold more than the lesser of the limit set by the law of the jurisdiction in which the employer is located or the maximum amount permitted under section 303(d) of the CCPA (15 U.S.C. 1673 (b)). Depending upon applicable State law, you may need to take into consideration the amounts paid for health care premiums in determining disposable income and applying appropriate withholding limits.
