What is the Child Support Lien Network (CSLN)?
The State of Rhode Island established the Child Support Lien Network in 1999 to publish data from states' delinquent child support obligor file into one accessible, easy-to-use database for the purpose of asset matching, specifically intercepting insurance settlements owed to delinquent child support obligors. Other states currently participating in the network are Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia.
For what purposes can an insurance company use the data contained in the CSLN?
An insurance company can only use this data for Title IV-D child support purposes under the Social Security Act. The data shows if a reported claimant or beneficiary has a delinquent support obligation.
Is the CSLN child support information on a secure web site?
All access and transfer of information is secure and all information is encrypted for privacy and confidentiality.

What options do insurance companies have in how they use the data?
In order to facilitate the efficient and prompt reporting of child support arrearages in one central location, insurance companies doing business in the state of Kansas may utilize this centralized database to identify child support cases matching pending insurance claims.
Insurance companies may participate in an automated data match process. Please contact our help desk at (888) 240-7488 for further information on how to use this efficient process.
Two Internet sites provide information to insurance companies on delinquent child support cases. This Public Site provides general information on the law and processing.
The Insurance Intercept Secure Processing Site (web site address only available to authorized remote users) provides insurance companies with the capability to review child support information via an Interactive Lookup-online system.
All access and transfer of information is secure and all information is encrypted for privacy and confidentiality. All authorized remote users must sign a Confidentiality Statement to be granted access to the secure site.
How often should an insurance company review the CSLN database?
Insurance companies are encouraged to query the CSLN database as early as possible in the claims process, but not later than 30 days before a claim settlement.
As an alternative, insurance companies can conduct electronic interfaces with Kansas. The interface matches past due and overdue child support obligor files on the CSLN database with insurance claim information maintained by ISO. This more easily identifies potential assets available for collection by the Kansas Child Support Services Program. This new interface makes interaction with your company much less intrusive. The ISO interface allows the CSLN web site and/or the Kansas Child Support Services Program to alert your company (by e-mail, fax or mail) of only those claims that your company has registered with ISO that have matched our past due and overdue obligor files. The CSLN/ISO processing option focuses work efforts on only those claimants that actually require child support enforcement activity. For more information on the automated CSLN/ISO method email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who does the insurance company notify when they have a match?
An insurance company does not have to notify anyone. CSLN will automatically alert the Kansas Child Support Services Program of any match via e-mail. The Kansas Child Support authorities will notify the insurance company and claimant of any enforcement action by mail.
How often will Kansas update the database?
The State of Kansas will update the database monthly, but the frequency may change at any time. Please note the date of the file when accessing this information.
