Electronic Funds Transfer
The California State Disbursement Unit (SDU) is now the single payment processing center for all of California child support payments including those made by employer wage withholding. To simplify the payment submission process, the SDU provides all employers the option to submit payments electronically through the banking network known as the Automated Clearing House (ACH).
Our EFT is more secure and cost effective than processing checks. EFT is a "win-win" for employers and employees. It provides the assurance payments will be made on behalf of your employees and received timely, allowing the SDU to process and distribute payments to families quickly and efficiently. We offer two methods of electronic payment processing:
Employers may use our web site or telephone IVR service to submit EFT payment requests. This services is free to all employers, and will allow you to input employee data once, and from that point forward, only make changes, deletions, and additions. Employers can go directly to the web site and enroll for this service. Using the ACH debit service, the employer will designate the date that the SDU will debit the employer bank account for the wage withholding amounts. Please visit our web site at
