All petitioners receiving ordered support payments from an employee of the City of New York, Department of Education, or the New York City Housing Authority that are mailed directly to their designated address are eligible to join the program. This program is not available to those recipients who are paid through the Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE), the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA), or other non-NYS Support Collection Agencies.
The Benefits of Direct Deposit
Petitioners who have their child support payments directly deposited into their accounts discover how this process is safer, faster, smarter, and offers better control of the monies due you. With no cost, accounts can be updated electronically and the funds be made available in your own account early each payday.
