EFFECTIVE 7/1/19 OHIO HAS CHANGED FROM THE E-QUICK PAY CARD TO THE smiONE VISA DEBIT CARD:

smiONE™ Visa Debit Card

The Ohio Child Support Debit Card Program provides you with a debit card called the smiONE™ Visa Debit Card to receive and use your support payments. Support payments are credited to your smiONE™ card automatically after the state receives and posts a payment to your case. You do not need a bank account to be enrolled. You can use the card at any place that accepts Visa debit cards. Cash withdrawals from your card can be made at any ATM or bank teller window displaying the Visa brand marks. The smiONE™ Debit Card website contains additional information about this card.

Ohio smiONE™ Balance and Transfer Information

Cardholders can access their available balance and transaction history securely at http://www.smionecard.com. All transaction information is displayed immediately in date and time order. Cardholders may also access balance and transaction information by calling Ohio smiONE™ Customer Support at 1-855-279-2744.

Expiring smiONE™ Visa Debit Cards

smiONE™ debit cards contain a magnetic stripe that over time can become worn, as can the card itself through regular usage. As such, the smiONE™ cards expire five years after the date they are issued. One month prior to the card’s expiration date, a new card will be mailed to you.

To avoid delays in your support payments, and to ensure delivery of reissued smiONE™ cards, please keep your County CSEA informed of your current address. The Valid Thru date on the front of your card is the expiration date.

The Expiring smiONE™ Questions and Answers Reference Guide  provides additional information about expiring cards.

Enrollment

Enrollment is simple! Visit http://oh.smartchildsupport.com and follow the instructions to enroll in either direct deposit or smiONE™ debit card. You can also complete the Ohio Child Support Program e-Disbursement Enrollment Form, sign it, attach your voided check or deposit slip, and follow the mailing/faxing instructions.
