The Erie County Department of Social Services has announced that on Monday, April 30, 2018 the Office of Child Support Enforcement (“OCSE”) will relocate to Floor 2 of the Edward A. Rath county office building (95 Franklin St, Buffalo, NY 14202) from their current location on the 7th Floor. The move will provide a larger, remodeled space for OCSE operations and a more private setting for interactions with individuals receiving services.
The Office of Child Support Enforcement enhances the well-being of families by assisting custodial parents with obtaining financial and medical support for their children. This is accomplished by locating absent parents, establishing paternity, establishing support obligations, and monitoring and enforcing those obligations. Individuals receiving benefits from Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (“TANF”) or Medicaid may be required as a matter of eligibility to cooperate with the OCSE in obtaining this support. Individuals not in receipt of Temporary Assistance or Medicaid may also utilize the services of the OCSE.
Individuals having business with the Office of Child Support Enforcement are asked to report to the 2nd Floor of the Rath Building beginning on Monday, April 30, 2018. To contact the OCSE, please call 888-208-4485.
Please direct questions to Brian Bray, Special Assistant to the Commissioner, ECDSS at (716) 858-8924 or via email at Brian.Bray@erie.gov .
