A New Way to Receive Adoption Subsidy Payments (En Español)
Starting in January 2011, the New York State Office of Children and Family Services and your Local Department of Social Services will issue Adoption benefits electronically via direct deposit or a nationally branded debit card.
Log into NYEPAY here to make your payment selection and view your monthly remittance statement. You can also manage your account and change your banking information as necessary.
Option #1: DIRECT DEPOSIT: Already have a bank account?
Have benefits deposited into your existing checking account for immediate access. Click here to be taken directly to the NYEPAY website where you can set up your account.
Option #2: DEBIT CARD:
Your monthly subsidy is automatically deposited to your card.
Use your card everywhere VISA® debit cards are accepted – in stores, online, to pay bills.
Withdraw your subsidy in increments at ATMs, banks, or at retail stores.
You can check your card balance at any time for free by calling the number on the back of your card or visiting the Chase account website: www.myaccount.chase.com
The Chase Debit Card is free, but fees and surcharges may apply to certain transactions and services. Make sure you read the information that comes with your card and keep this information in a safe place.
