Affiliated Computer Services Inc. will continue handling child-support payment services for New Hampshire under a $3.9 million contract renewal from the state. The three-year contract has two option years.
Under the contract, ACS of Dallas will process support payments, handle employer electronic payments, and offer full banking services through subcontractor Citizens Bank.
In so doing, the company will process support disbursements via paper check, direct deposit or debit card. The company also will print coupons and perform outreach to encourage the use of electronic payments for child support.
The Division of Child Support Services, which is part of the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, awarded the contract.
