Alaska Child Support Services Division

Letter to Alaskan Employers

Dear Alaskan Employer:

Alaska Statute 25.27.075 was changed to comply with federal law. All Alaskan employers are now required to report every new hire and rehire to the Child Support Services division (CSSD) within 20 days of hire. The only exceptions to this requirement are employers who have employees in more than one state and report to another state.

We at CSSD are very interested in working with employers to assure compliance with theLetter to Employers legislation. This law will help children in Alaska and other states as we are able to quickly determine where absent parents are working. If you have any questions, please call:

New Hire Reporting Message Line at (907) 269-6685
In State Toll Free Number is (877) 269-6685

Employers may submit the data by email or CD. If you use one of these means, you must use the format described in the attachment and report it twice monthly. Another reporting option is through our MyAlaska enabled web application Employer New Hire Reporting . This information may also be transmitted by mail or you may fax a copy of the employee’s W-4 form to (907) 787-3197. CSSD is willing to work with employers to define other acceptable methods of data transmission.

Then provide the following information:


  • Full name
  • Street address
  • City, State, & Zip Code
  • Social Security Number
  • Date of birth
  • Date of hire / rehire
  • State of hire


  • Name
  • Payroll department street address
  • Payroll department City, State, & Zip Code
  • Federal EIN (Employer Identification Number)
  • State EIN (Employer Identification Number)

  • If the employee or employer has a foreign address, we also need the name of the country and zip code.

Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions about this program. We would be glad to hear from you. Our telephone numbers are (907) 269-6089,  Toll Free In State Number is (877) 269-6685, or message line 269-6685.
