eIWO (electronic income withholding order) is a digital alternative to the paper-based wage withholding order. It uses a record layout on the computer to transfer electronic data directly to the employer. The main goals for eIWO is to reduce operating costs, improve customer service, and increase child support collections. eIWO can be used with both public and private employers.
