Direct deposit is a secure and convenient way to receive child support payments. You can choose to directly deposit your child support funds into a checking OR a savings account. If you want direct deposit simply fill out the Direct Deposit Application and mail it to the address found on the top left hand corner of the direct deposit application. Payments received after submitting an application for direct deposit will be deposited directly into your checking or savings account. You can switch to direct deposit at anytime by following the process below.
- If you are depositing into a checking account, you will need to include a voided check (not a deposit slip) along with the direct deposit application.
- If you are depositing into a savings account, you will need to include a letter prepared by your financial institution on their letterhead along with the direct deposit application. The letter must include your savings account number and the financial institution's routing number.
- If the entire amount of the direct deposit payment you receive is ultimately deposited to a financial institution outside the U.S., please call the Wisconsin Support Collections Trust Fund at (800) 991-5530 (toll-free) or (877) 209-5209 (toll-free TDD).
- If you do not have a printer, you can get the Direct Deposit form mailed to you by calling the KIDS Info Line (800) 991-5530 (toll-free); (877) 209-5209 (toll-free TDD), weekdays, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
- If you are currently receiving child support funds through direct deposit and would prefer to receive the Wisconsin EPPIC Debit MasterCard, call the KIDS information line at (800) 991-5530 (toll-free) or (877) 209-5209 (toll-free TDD) weekdays 8:00 am-5:00 pm (CST) to cancel your direct deposit.
