BAM - NDNH Meeting the Requirements

2 Overview What is NDNH Employer Compliance BAM Requests Documentation

3 What is NDNH “New hire reporting is a process by which an employer reports information on newly hired employees to a designated state agency soon after the employee's date of hire. States match new hire reports against their child support records to locate parents, establish a child support order, or enforce an existing order. The state transmits its new hire reports to the National Directory of New Hires (NDNH). The NDNH is a database maintained by the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement that contains new hire, quarterly wage, and unemployment information provided by State Child Support agencies, State Employment Security agencies, and federal agencies. State agencies operating Employment Security and Workers' Compensation Programs may use state new hire information to detect and prevent erroneous benefit payments. States can also conduct matches between the new hire database and other state programs to prevent unlawful or erroneous public assistance payments.” - US Department of Health and Human Services

5 What Employers Report The W-4 file contains information on all newly hired employees as reported by employers to each State Directory of New Hires (SDNH). Federal agencies report directly to the NDNH. This file consists of the following six data elements found on the IRS Form W-4, plus two optional data elements: Employee name; Employee Social Security Number (SSN); Employee address; Employer name; Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN); Employer address; Date of hire (optional); State of hire (optional) Other optional information by state
