Child Support Services (CSS) no longer issues child support paper checks. Families receive child support payments on Oklahoma MasterCard debit card
. In addition to the debit card families may choose to have child support payments deposited directly into their bank accounts.
Child support payments are well suited for the Oklahoma MasterCard debit card. Money is not added to the debit card until a parent makes a payment. The card can be used at more locations and in more ways than the electronic based transaction (EBT) system. This new program makes smart business sense for the state of Oklahoma. The Oklahoma MasterCard debit card saves the state money by no longer mailing paper checks. The debit card also helps the state fight fraud problems and reduces lost or misdirected "paper checks." Electronic payments and improved security allow the custodial parents to "shop smarter." The debit card is a win-win situation for the state and custodial persons.
All custodial families receive the Oklahoma MasterCard debit card until they are set up with direct deposit. For more information about the debit card, go to the Way2Go Card web site www.goprogram.com
