Changes to Payments in Ohio’s Child Support Program

Starting July 1, 2019, the Ohio e-QuickPay Debit MasterCard is discontinued, and a new smiONE VISA debit card takes its place.

For a smooth transition:

  • Keep your e-QuickPay card until you spend down the balance to zero. The balance will NOT transfer to the smiOne VISA debit card.  The e-QuickPay card can still can be used after July 1 until the balance reaches zero.
  • Effective 07-01-19 any payments posted to your account will apply to your new smiONE VISA debit card.
  • If you are a client with a prior direct deposit to a bank account (EFT), you will not be issued a smiONE VISA debit card and payments will continue to EFT to your bank account.
  • Questions on an existing smiONE VISA debit card (balances, transactions, lost cards ,ect):
    • call smiONE Customer Support at 855-279-2744
  • To enroll in the new smiONE VISA debit card program or direct deposit:
