The Payment Intercept Program (PIP) requires insurance companies to work with DOR to identify pending insurance claim payments owed to parents who have child support debts.
Public retirement boards and other state entities can access PIP to determine if individuals who are separating from public assistance and receiving public retirement payments still owe child support.
PIP helps families provide for their children. The program also helps offset the cost to Massachusetts when individuals fail to pay their taxes.
PIP also furthers the goal of the Medicaid program, which provides both medical and financial public assistance benefits to low-income families.
