Automated Billing and Debt Collection

NFC offers an automated database management system that provides a method for billing and collection of outstanding debts from Federal employees (current, separated or retired) having outstanding debts with the Government.

Centralized Offset Program

NFC’s centralized offset program allows for the collection of delinquent debts owed to Federal agencies and states. Our Administrative Billings and Collections System (ABCO) interfaces with the Treasury Offset Program (TOP). This interface not only allows NFC to facilitate the collection of debts through our Payroll/Personnel System (PPS) but also provides our customers with the ability to run reports on the amount collected each pay period.
