Oregon Child Support Program

Receive Support

The Oregon Child Support Program works hard to make sure that receiving a support payment is as convenient as possible. Custodial parents have two options to receive support payments:

  • Direct deposit to a checking or savings account

  • Electronic deposits made to a U.S. Bank® ReliaCard® Visa® prepaid debit card

To receive payments via direct deposit, the custodial parent must have a bank account. Learn more about direct deposit. No bank account is necessary to receive funds on a U.S. Bank® ReliaCard® Visa® prepaid debit card. To learn more about ReliaCard, visit Prepaid Cards.

To begin receiving child support payments to either a bank account or a U.S. Bank® ReliaCard® Visa®, or to change how you are currently receiving support payments please complete and return a Direct Deposit Enrollment/Authorization Form (English | Spanish) or a ReliaCard Enrollment/Authorization Form (English | Spanish) to the following address:

Search for unclaimed funds - The Child Support Program may be holding money that belongs to you. Parents are required to notify the Child Support Program of any changes to their address or contact info. When parents fail to do so and funds are received on the case but cannot be delivered because contact info is out-of-date, the money is returned to the Child Support Program for safekeeping.
