Payments for child authorizations entered in Legacy (ICAU/ICEA/ICCR) are processed by CSIPS (Children Services Integrated Payment System). CSIPS continues to issue child care payments on three scheduled payrolls each month.
Payments for child authorizations entered in FAMIS are processed by FAMIS. Payments continue to be issued on daily payrolls.
RETURNED OR REFUSED DIRECT DEPOSIT PAYMENTS GENERATED FROM LEGACY AND FAMIS
Direct deposit payments refused or returned by the financial institution are returned to the Division of Budget and Finance (DBF). Returned payments are recorded in DDIQ.
DDEP information is canceled by DBF upon receipt of a returned or refused direct deposit payment. These payments are reissued as paper checks until new DDEP data is entered at the county office.
