Newberry County Implementation of State Disbursement Unit for Support Payments

Newberry County will officially implement the South Carolina State Disbursement Unit (SDU) effective February 4, 2019.  After that date, support payments currently made by obligors to Newberry County Clerk of Court should be made payable to the South Carolina State Disbursement Unit and mailed to:

                South Carolina State Disbursement Unit

                PO Box 100302

                Columbia SC 29202-3302

 

Employers and interstate child support agencies shall continue to make support payments to the Newberry County Clerk of Court until directed to send those payments to the State Disbursements Unit in August 2019.

Support payors can find additional information about the State Disbursement Unit and other payments options at www.dss.sc.gov/child-support.

If you have questions about when or how to make payments to the State Disbursements Unit, please contact the State Disbursement Unit Customer Service Center at 800-768-5858.  Agents are available M-F, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm, excluding State holidays.

For counties offering web and/or IVR payment options

Discontinued Clerk of Court Electronic Payment Options

Effective January 18, 2019, Newberry County Clerk of Court will discontinue options for making web and/or interactive voice response support payments via credit/debit card and automatic withdrawal (ACH debit).  The State Disbursement Unit provides new options for making walk-in and online payments.  Please see www.dss.sc.gov/child-support for additional details.  This change ONLY affects support payments.  Other types of county payments (for example, property taxes) can still be paid by credit card from the county’s website. 

If you appeared before a judge due to failure to pay your child support and were ordered to pay a specific amount (sometimes referred to as a purge payment) to be in compliance with the judge’s ruling, you may come to the payment window in the Clerk of Court’s office and pay cash or money order to pay the ordered amount.
