California State Disbursement Unit (SDU):
What you need to know:
California’s child support program made some important changes that makes it easier for families to get their support payments and gives parents who pay support more payment options. If you are a family receiving support payments, a parent making support payments, or an employer garnishing an employee’s wages on behalf of a child support agency, there is information available to help you utilize and access the State Disbursement Unit (SDU), their services, and their website. For additional information, please click on the SDU website link listed below or call (866) 901-3212.
NOTICE - for parents receiving child support payments, California is moving to paperless payments. Beginning in November 2020, the California Department of Child Support Services will stop issuing paper checks to recipients of child support and will instead provide payments through Direct Deposit or Electronic Payment (EPC) Cards only. Go to the SDU website for additional information.
