BancFirst now accepts child support payments

NORMAN — Child support customers will soon have a new way to pay thanks to an agreement between BancFirst and Oklahoma Child Support Services.

Beginning today, parents needing to make an Oklahoma child support payment can walk into any BancFirst location and, for a $5 bank fee, submit a cash payment. Walk-ins will be accepted at any BancFirst location.

Parents needing to cash their payroll check to make a child support payment can use the ICan check cashing program available at most BancFirst locations. ICan check cashing carries a separate fee determined at the time the check is presented.

Parents also may obtain a cash advance on their credit card or debit card to make their child support payments. More details can be learned at any BancFirst location.

The agreement between BancFirst and Oklahoma Child Support Services is at no cost to taxpayers. BancFirst is Oklahoma’s largest state-chartered bank with more than 100 service locations in more than 50 Oklahoma communities.

More than half of all OCSS locations have at least one BancFirst branch nearby.

“The BancFirst payment option is the latest of many ways non-custodial parents can choose to make their court-ordered child support payments,” Jeff Wagner, a spokesperson for OCSS, said.

“This agreement is just one of a number of initiatives OCSS has been putting in place to improve choice and convenience for the more than 200,000 families we serve.”

To learn more about ways to make child support payments or for more information about Oklahoma Child Support Services, call 1-800-522-2922, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday or visit and select “Child Support.”

“We are pleased to be a partner with the state of Oklahoma. The OCSS relationship, our most recent partnership with the state, is one example of BancFirst’s ability to leverage our Oklahoma network of banking locations to serve the state and bring value to the citizens of Oklahoma,” said Blane Allen, senior vice president of Financial Services for BancFirst.
