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 13th 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 June 24th 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

 

Welcome LCO Child Support Specialists

Aaniin / Sheku swakweku (hello everyone). My name is Renee Manuelito and I am the newly hired Child Support Specialist for the Lac Courte Oreilles Child Support Program.

I am an Oneida Nation Tribal member and previously lived in Oneida, WI, before moving to LCO 4 years ago. I am engaged to a wonderful man and have 3 beautiful children ages 13, 8 and 2.

Before taking on the LCOCSS position, I have worked for the LCO Tribe for nearly 4 years. I also have a combined 15+ years with the Oneida Nation in the gaming and retail industry. I worked for Irene Hill with the Oneida COP’s Program. The COP Program allowed for me to be able to do respite work and take care of my grandmother, helping her meet her personal and medical needs as a disabled Elder.

My education: Before moving to LCO, I attended NWTC in Marinette, WI. Due to personal and family needs I was unable to complete my degree. However, I hope to be able to continue my education here and finish my college requirements to obtain a degree in IT-developer or change course to Business Management.

I have a strong work ethic and am passionate in all I do. I am excited to begin my new journey with the LCO Child Support Program and will strive to maintain excellent customer service, as well as meeting the needs to participants to the best of my ability. Chi Miigwech / Yaw^ko (thank you) for your time.
