Direct Deposit / Electronic Payment Card for Custodial Parents

The California State Disbursement Unit (SDU) provides a service called the Direct Deposit Program. This program allows you to have your support payments deposited directly into your bank account or to an Electronic Payment Card that functions like a debit card. You must have a checking or savings account to enroll in the Direct Deposit Program. This program is confidential, easy, and free.

Once enrolled, your support payments that are sent to the SDU will be credited against your support account(s). The support payment will then be automatically deposited into your bank account or EPC. Please note that we cannot provide you the specific dates that your support payments will be deposited into your bank account because the dates that the SDU receives the support payments may vary.

If you would like to sign up for either electronic payment option, you can click here.
