Payments now disbursed on debit card.
The LCO Child Support Program is now providing an easier and safer way to receive and manage your child support payments. The checks our program participants were previously receiving will now be replaced by the smiONE Tribal Debit Card. Starting June 2016, all custodial parties with an open child support cases with the LCO Child Support Program had been mailed their smiONE Tribal Debit Card to the most current mailing address on file. If you have an open child support case with us and had not received your debit card by July 2016, please contact our office to make sure we have your most current mailing address.
The smiONE Tribal Debit Card eliminates the possibility of lost or stolen checks, costly check cashing fees, postal service delays, and can be used anywhere VISA is accepted. It also provides easy access to your child support payments. When you receive your card follow all directions provided to activate your new smiONE Tribal Debit Card. Please visit their website to see all available options. www.smionecard.com
