Information required to make a payment:

  • Applicant Name
  • Invoice number and/or subsidiary number
  • Bank routing number
  • Bank account number

Payment will be processed as an Automated Clearing House (ACH) Debit - The ACH Debit method allows the state's data collector to electronically debit your bank account and credit the state's bank account. Your account will be debited by the state's data collector only upon your initiation and for the amount you specify.

The state pays the cost for you to make an ACH Debit payment via the First Data’s EPS. You will be responsible for any fees that your financial institution may charge.

Payments made before 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time (PT) will settle on the next banking day.
