Finance & Accounting

The Financing and Accounting unit of the Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) is responsible for the collection and distribution of child and spousal support payments payable through the State Disbursement Unit (SDU). The SDU is a centralized collection and disbursement unit for child support payments from employers, income withholders, non-custodial parents/obligors and others. The SDU must process all IV-D cases and non-IV-D cases with income withholdings, and must distribute all payments, except disputed arrears, within two (2) business days of receipt by the SDU. Disputed arrears disbursement may be delayed until the resolution of any appeal.
 
In addition to receiving and distributing all payments, an SDU is responsible for:

  • Accurately identifying payments;
  • Promptly disbursing payments to custodial parents (as appropriate); and
  • Furnishing payment records to any parent or to the court.
