We would like to thank you for your continued commitment to the children and families of the State of Rhode Island. You are a key partner to the success of this new hire reporting program, and we thank you for your diligence in reporting new hires and expected lump sum payments.

New hire reporting accelerates the child support income withholding order process, expedites child support collection from parents who change jobs frequently, and quickly locates non-custodial parents to help establish paternity and child support orders. All of which help children and families receive the support they deserve. New hire reporting also saves taxpayers by preventing welfare, workers’ compensation, and unemployment insurance fraud.

The Rhode Island New Hire Reporting Directory launched an automated lump sum payment module - a quick, easy to use, and timely tool designed to help employers meet and retain compliance with lump sum payment reporting requirements.

We would like to make you aware of your responsibility to report lump sum payments on behalf of employees to Rhode Island New Hire Reporting Directory prior to distribution.

Lump sum payments are considered employee income and thereby are subject to withholding to collect past due child support. Employers that have received an income withholding order that includes an amount for past due support are required to comply with the instructions outlined therein.

Please refer to the Rhode Island Lump Sum Employer Guide where you will find additional information about Rhode Island’s lump sum payment reporting requirements.
