What choice is best for me?
Your best choice depends on your situation. Both direct deposit and the
Nevada Debit Card provide many of the same benefits. There are no checks to get
lost or stolen, the money is available to you as soon as it is deposited, and
your payments will not be interrupted, if you move.
One important consideration is cost. The child support program does not
charge any fees for using the direct deposit service or the Nevada Debit Card.
However, there could be ATM and other transaction fees charged when using the
Nevada Debit Card. These fees will be fully disclosed to you when you receive a
debit card, and you will be given instructions on how to minimize these fees.
