(2) A financial institution, insurer, or carrier shall forward money as required by subsection (1) no sooner than the next day and no later than the seventh day after 1 of the following takes place:
(a) The financial institution, insurer, or carrier notifies the payer and the title IV-D agency that the payer's financial assets are, or money to be paid or compensation is, frozen as required by section 25e and has not received, within 28 days after the day on which the financial institution, insurer, or carrier sent the notices, a notice from the title IV-D agency that the payer, or another person with an interest in the payer's financial assets, has submitted a challenge to the levy under section 25f.
(b) The financial institution, insurer, or carrier receives, within the time limit prescribed in subdivision (a), a notice from the title IV-D agency that the payer, or another person with an interest in the payer's financial assets, submitted a challenge to the levy and receives the subsequent title IV-D agency notice required by section 25f, directing the financial institution, insurer, or carrier to act in accordance with either the title IV-D agency review determination or the circuit court decision.
(3) If, in order to forward sufficient money to the SDU, the financial institution must convert 1 or more financial assets to cash, the financial institution shall execute the conversion, assessing a resulting fee or other cost or penalty against the payer. If the payer's financial assets are insufficient to pay the past due support amount plus resulting fees and other costs or penalties, the financial institution may deduct the fees, costs, and penalties before forwarding the balance of the money.
