Remitting Web Payments

Instructions for EFT Payment on the Web

A computer with a screen resolution of 1024x768 and the latest browser version of either Internet Explorer or Firefox is recommended. This system uses the most advanced security available to ensure the privacy of payment information. All transactions are conducted over a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection secured with 128-bit encryption. SSL is a communications protocol for transmitting private information over the internet. The system does not place cookies on your computer. Each time the site is used the employer number and PIN must be entered.

After five minutes of inactivity online, a time out feature will automatically end the session.

If needed, employers may submit payment for multiple districts by selecting the "Log Off" link when finished paying for a district. You will be connected to the original Log On screen to begin with a different employer number.

If you have problems using the system, call Customer Service at (800) 230-1107. Enter your seven-digit employer number and your four-digit PIN code. Select option 5 to be connected to an operator.
