Does anyone here recieve their child support payments on an EPPICARD? and if so do you usually get your payment in one lump sum or after each payment the father makes? and how long does it usually take for the funds to be available on your card once he makes the payment? im new to this. thanks.

 My deposit is made every Wednesday (except when there is a holiday at the beginning of the week) and the money is available immediately.

You can get emails telling you when the money is deposited to the account, which is what I do.  You can check you balance and statement, online at

Mine is posted on the child support website (VA) on every other Friday, so that's every two weeks.  It doesn't get put onto my eppicard until Tuesday though.  It might be because I am in a different state than the non custodial parent.

His employer sends the whole sum to CSE by the first of the month. I get a random amount every 2 weeks or so. It's never the same amount and sometimes I get 3 small payments. I've yet to figure out why they do it that way. I know his employer deduct it out of his paycheck and hold it then sends the entire amount. My payments post to CSE usually on Friday, but sometimes when I get a random payment it's on another day. It takes 2 business days for it to post to EPPICARD. So when a payment is posted on Friday and there's a Monday holiday it's not available until Wednesday.

DH gets back child support payments from his ex. They auto deducted from her pay. He gets two payments per month that equal the total amount minus $20 to the state (VA). We've never figured out exact dates it's deposited or why they keep taking the $20 since it was supposed to be a one time fee.....other than that, we don't understand the why's and how's and when you call the caseworker, all you get is the runaround.

I checked the department of revenues child support website and it says they sent my child support to my eppicard(state child support debit card) on the 28th of december but its still not showing up on my card... 2 days later, strange because it always shows up on the 2nd day after it is recieved by dept of revenue, i was told because of christmas it would be delayed but after processing it thursday it would be on my card as of 12:01am saturday, its now 9:30am saturday and still no money, never happened to me before, any advice?
