A limited-time program called Pay It Off may help you lower the amount you owe in child support.
Offered from June 1, 2023, to June 30, 2023, Pay It Off doubles the value of the payment that you make toward child support debt that is permanently owed to the New York City Department of Social Services (NYC DSS). When you make a minimum payment of $500, the Office of Child Support Services (OCSS) will match that amount, up to the amount of debt owed to DSS.
If your court order is actively charging, you must first pay the total amount of your most recent court-ordered current support obligation that is due in June, if that has not yet been satisfied. The amount taken to pay current support will not be matched. If the remainder no longer exceeds $500, it will not be matched based on the Pay It Off criteria.
More than 3,000 noncustodial parents have participated in a Pay It Off program to reduce $16 million of debt owed to the NYC Department of Social Services (DSS). The average debt reduction per case is $4,625.
Don’t miss this opportunity to lower or eliminate your DSS child support debt!
