All other payments are applied within 2-3 business days. Business day cut off time is 11:59pm CST for payments made via SMART e-Pay and payments made at kiosks.

Statement of Account (SoA)

  • NCPs receive a Statement of Account once a year in January, unless there is a change to the obligation (i.e. modification). In those cases, an updated SoA will go out the following month if the NCP meets the criteria for receiving a SoA.
  • NCPs paying by income withholding order do not receive the SoA except in specific circumstances.
  • A sample of the SoA can be accessed in two parts:
    1. Statement of Account July 2018 – this is the main portion of the SoA and can list up to 15 FGNs for an NCP;
    2. Stubs for SoA July 2018 – this portion has payment coupons that can be used by the NCP when making a payment. If the NCP requires additional payment coupons, they can request them from their child support office. The office will access ALC (STUBZ) to print additional coupons.
