State Disbursement Unit

Coming in early 2021!

The SCDSS Child Supports Services Division will launch a Customer Service Portal for parents – those paying child support and those receiving payments - so that they can view important information about their case – any time, any day.

Parents can create a unique user ID and password and view important case information. This will include payment information, hearing dates, enforcement measures in place, and occasional announcements affecting our customers. You will also be able to update your address, phone number, employment, and email information as well as send inquiries to our customer service staff.

South Carolina has established a centralized State Disbursement Unit (SDU) in accordance with 45 CFR 302.32 and South Carolina Code § 63-17-610 (2016) for the purpose of collecting and disbursing child support statewide.

The SDU collects and distributes child and spousal support payments for cases managed by DSS and all private support cases enforced by the Clerks of Court.
