Per Federal Law, the State of Pennsylvania requires all payments be directed to the PA SCDU (State Collection Disbursement Unit). If you are the Defendant in a case and need to make a payment, you have several options. Please note that payments may take several business days to process on your case depending on the method chosen.
If you have any questions regarding payments, you can contact PA SCDU at 1-877-727-7238.
There are two ways that a Plaintiff can receive the support payment.
Direct deposit: The support payment can be disbursed to an account of your choosing. You will need to file the request for direct deposit for this option. You can find the form to request direct deposit in the Forms & Documents section of the Domestic Relations home page or you can contact our office to have the form mailed to you. The completed form can be faxed to 717-944-2736. Do not return the form to the Domestic Relations.
*Please note, the Plaintiff's name must be on the bank account for the direct deposit to be processed.
: The Eppicard is a debit card that the support is disbursed to. You are able to use the card where Mastercard is accepted. You are responsible for any fees incurred while using the Eppicard. Please note, if you do not elect to have the support disbursed via direct deposit, the payments will automatically be disbursed to an Eppicard. You may contact Eppicard at 1-800-304-1669 or www.eppicard.com
