If your account is in default, a judgment will be entered in Superior Court. A lien may be placed upon your assets by the Division of Employer Accounts.

If you would like to enter into a payment plan or pay off the liability on a judgment, call our Collections Unit at 609-633-6400, option 1, or email Collection.Mailbox@dol.nj.gov.

To search for the status of a judgment or verify that a judgment has been satisfied, visit the New Jersey Courts website.
