Changes in CSLN announced

By Kate O'Kelly October 30, 2014

kate_o_kellyThe state of Alabama has announced that it has withdrawn from the Child Support Lien Network (CSLN). The decision to withdraw was based on changes in local government constraints, similar to when Oregon left the program in 2012.

ISO ClaimSearch® assists insurers in their reporting to state child support enforcement agencies that issue liens on insurance payments to parents who are delinquent in paying child support. The ISO ClaimSearch Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) Reporting Service features two programs:

  • the Child Support Lien Network (CSLN), which currently has participation from 30 states
  • the Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE), which currently has participation in 49 states (Minnesota does not participate) and the District of Columbia, as well as three U.S. territories (U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and Puerto Rico)

ISO ClaimSearch customers may participate in CSEA at no additional charge. If you’d like more information about CSLN and the changes in individual state participation, contact Ann Murray, project manager, Child Support Lien Network (office: 1-888-240-7488 ext. 200). For information on the ISO ClaimSearch CSEA Reporting Service, please contact claimsearchcompliance@iso.com.
