For anyone who gets child support and does direct deposit, do you know how long it took them to get it going?? I got my first check back in the beginning of Dec and sent in the direct deposit form right away. That was about 5-6 weeks ago and I still don't have direct deposit. I caalled the 800 number for IL CS but had no luck.

I am in CA. I don't get direct deposit, but I have been told that it takes about 1 week after they process the payment. I opted to have my money loaded onto a debit card. I don't get it often, so it is like monopoly money when I DO get it.

I have direct deposit for my son's CS. I don't remember exactly how long it took to get it going, but I don't think it was that long. He gets paid biweekly, so there are two deposits per month (usually). Can you go online to see if they've gotten the money from him? I can check mine online and it shows one date where it's withdrawn from his check and a second when it's deposited. Good luck, keep calling...government is not the model of efficiency but hopefully they get it taken care of for you!

  I didn't get direct deposit, I got the CS debit card.  That one arrived within two weeks.  I believe you should have direct deposit already.

Do you have an Eppicard? Or is it through your bank? I know with the Eppicard system it only takes a few days for it to be posted to your account once domestics receives the money. However, with a private checking account it takes a little longer...which is why I just closed my Wachovia account and stuck with the Eppicard account which is through...um hmm...I want to say PNC but I am really not sure...I just know it's a mastercard lol

The checks are getting mailed to me, it just takes forever. I keep hoping the direct deposit will kick in. Maybe I'll send another one in, this is getting old. He gets paid every Friday and I don't usually get the check till the next Fri or Sat, or if it's a holiday (like this week) I won't get it until next Monday. It would be nice to get it the same day every week.
