Illinois EPPICard - the safe and secure way to access your payments!


The Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS) Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) and the Division of Rehabilitation Services intends to maximize electronic forms of payment and eliminate issuance of checks to the greatest extent possible for licensed and license-exempt Child Care Home-Based Providers and Personal Assistants.

One of the electronic payment options is the Illinois Debit Mastercard® card - A better way to receive your provider payments from IDHS. Simply spend your money by presenting your debit card-it is safe, convenient and secure. You have immediate access to your funds because your provider payments are electronically loaded to your Mastercard® card account. You will not be waiting for your check to be sent through the mail.

The new debit Mastercard® account provides access to your funds 24 hours a day at ATMs, bank teller windows and merchant locations worldwide, anywhere debit Mastercard® cards are accepted. Your debit card account is FDIC insured and your account is protected by your Personal Identification Number (PIN).

Your deposits are posted on the banking day after your payment processes. IDHS is pleased to offer you the convenience and security of the Illinois Debit Mastercard®.
