South Carolina Starting a Program to Track Child Support

The South Carolina Department of Social Services recently told the state’s Senate panel that they hope to implement a new system to better track parents who are behind on their child support payments. The state has to pay between $11 and $15 million to the government each year for the failure to collect payments. Employees from Xerox Corp. are in South Carolina to start working on the program since they were approved to begin the project in August. The state will be using a program similar to what Delaware already has in place. The system will cost about $130 million and should be ready by October 2019.
