 - Online Payments

Parents can go to www.ebtEDGE.com and select “Cardholder Login” to make a payment to their provider. Parents can access the website via a desktop computer, tablet, or mobile phone to make a payment or review payments. The parent can log in to the website using their card number and password. The username is the 16-digit MyWIChildCare EBT card number, and the password will be the parent’s PIN. The parent will then be able to view information regarding their child(ren)’s authorization(s), including the number of authorized hours and the authorized provider(s).


In order to pay their provider, the parent must select which of their authorized children they would like to submit payment for, which provider location should receive the payment (if more than one), and the amount of the payment. Each authorized child on the case and/or provider and/or provider location will require a separate transaction. The provider will be identified only by the provider’s FIS Identification Number. The Parent Portal can be used to confirm if the correct provider has been authorized. At the conclusion of this process, the parent will receive a confirmation number that they should keep in case of payment disputes.


Note: A Parent Portal Tutorial contains information for parents on the Parent Portal functions, and provides instructions on how to make payments using the Parent Portal.
