New Bulletin - Financial Institution Data Match Program

Monday, May 21, 2018
The Division of Credit Unions has published Bulletin B-18-10 (Financial Institution Data Match Program).

The Personal Responsibility and Work Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA) required states to implement a quarterly data match of non-custodial parents, who owe past due child support, to accounts maintained at financial institutions.

The FIDM program provides an additional collection tool for child support agencies so custodial parents and children get the child support they are owed. In Washington State, the office that conducts the FIDM data matches is the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), Division of Child Support (DCS).

Examiners are expected to be flexible in their supervisory response after considering the unique and potential long-term nature of the issues confronting the affected credit unions.
