Paying Child Support Just Got Easier in Vermont!

The Vermont Office of Child Support (OCS) has launched a new service that allows parents and employers to make child support payments online using credit or debit cards.

The EZpay4kids.vt.gov website was developed in partnership with the Vermont Information Consortium, the State’s e-government partner. Available 24/7, this online service is both secure and convenient.

People can also pay using credit or debit cards by:

  • Calling OCS at 1-800-786-3214; or
  • Visiting one of the five regional offices.

“We believe these new, flexible payment options will help people make their payments faster and on time,” said OCS Director Jeff Cohen. “We also expect these options to help increase the total amount of child support collected for children in Vermont.”

People who choose the EZ pay option will be charged a $5 convenience fee each time they make a payment using a credit or debit card.

For more information about these new payment options, go to EZpay4kids.vt.gov or contact the Office of Child Support at 1-800-786-3214.
