What is this Eppicard all about?
The government introduced the eppicard as a more modern way for people to receive payments issued from the state. The eppicard was first unleashed in 2005 with the main target being to replace the then current system of government issued checks for receiving benefit payments.
People familiar with collecting child support checks will have probably already made the upgrade to new eppicard system. It’s a great way to access your child support funds whilst being able to use it like a regular credit or debit card. That means drawing funds from ATM machines, paying for goods in stores and using it online to make a purchase. Probably the main advantage for most people is the fact you get your account instantly credited with your allocate funds which beats a trip to the bank every month and having to then wait for the check to clear before being able to access the funds. The date your funds are due will be the date your card is credited. The situation when this may not be the case would be if the payment is meant for a Saturday or Sunday for which the funds would be credited on the next Monday.
