You will need to choose one of two methods to receive your child support payments.
Electronic Payment (Debit) Card
The Arizona Electronic Payment Card (EPC) is a debit card. Child support payments are transferred electronically into a card account that allows you to access your money at any Automated Teller Machine (ATM), worldwide. The discreet VISA® card is accepted anywhere debit cards are accepted. You will be using your own money from child support payments which have been deposited on your behalf.
- DCSS can only fund the card with money that is received. If no money is received, then there will not be any deposits made to the card.
- After we receive your Electronic Payment Authorization form, it will take up to two weeks to receive your electronic payment card. You must activate the card in order to begin using it. Until you receive your card, you will continue to receive your child support payments by check.

IMPORTANT: Before using your EPC, you must call 1-855-847-2030 to activate your card by selecting your access code and your Personal Identification Number (PIN).
