South Carolina State Disbursement Unit
P.O. Box 100302
Columbia, SC 29202-3302
If you are required to make child support payments, you can find information about the State Disbursement Unit and payment options at the Department of Social Services.

If you appeared before a judge due to failure to pay your child support and were ordered to pay a specific amount (sometimes referred to as a purge payment), you may come to the payment window in the Clerk of Court Office, and use cash or a money order to pay the ordered amount to be in compliance with the judge’s ruling.
Note: Support payments in South Carolina terminate when a child turns 18 or graduates high school, whichever is later.
