Building a Retained Support Overpayment

This article indicates the steps for how to build a retained support overpayment in OSIS.

  1. When a custodial parent (CP) receives TANF and accepts a child support payment directly from a non-custodial parent (NCP), CSS must verify whether IV-A was notified of the direct payment. If the CP did not report the payment, the CP is required to pay DHS back the current support they received from the NCP. This is called a retained support overpayment. A retained support overpayment is calculated and documented at the district office level by building an OPR OBL in OSIS. If a payment has been reported to IV-A, then that month is not included in the overpayment.First check the CFPL screen to insure all direct payments are entered. If there are any payments missing, update them using the CFPA screen.
