Employers Must Remit All Child Support Withholdings to CSPC
The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) Office of Child Support developed Child Support Payment Central (CSPC) in response to federal legislation mandating the implementation and operation of a state disbursement unit for collecting and disbursing child support payments. Employers must remit all child support withholdings to CSPC for processing.

For information concerning billing procedures, please go to the CSPC Website. Employers are now able to submit withholding electronically. This not only saves time, money and paper, but also increases accuracy. Further information can be found here.

Public Assistance

Public assistance refers to government programs that provide funding to communities, individuals and families in need. Examples include: Cash Assistance, Food Assistance, Medicaid, Child Care Assistance, Transportation Assistance and Fraud.


Our strong partnership with many state and local organizations offer opportunities to job seekers in their path to finding rewarding employment while assisting employers in building a successful workforce.

Child Support

Child Support is money paid by a parent, who isn’t living with his or her children, to help cover the cost of their care. Child Support helps guarantee that children’s basic needs are met: from food, shelter and clothes to education, transportation and medical expenses.

Protective Services

We provide protective services to the elderly and children who are in danger of harm, unable to protect themselves, and/or have no one else to assist them. SCOJFS is mandated to investigate and evaluate all reports of suspected abuse and neglect.
