All the details you need to know about your Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction Fee Collections Program
Information provided on this webpage:
If paying by mail, we recommend mailing your payments no later than the 25th of the month, so that there is enough time for them to be received, processed and credited to your account by the 1st.
No other forms of payment are accepted, and will be returned to you. This will delay your payment being processed and could result in your payment being late. DO NOT SEND cash DO NOT SEND personal checks DO NOT SEND company checks.
Credit: MasterCard, Visa, Discover
Debit: MasterCard, Visa
NOTE: Debit cards must be associated with a USPS Zip Code. Since prepaid debit cards are not usually associated with a Zip Code, they will probably not work.
The amount of money you pay each month is specific to your case.
If you choose to do so, you may send in payment for more than one month at a time.
Be sure to keep your receipt in case there are any problems with the delivery and processing of your payment.
If paying by mail, it is important that you write both your CCIS Number and ZIP on your payment AND on the Payment Voucher to ensure that your account is credited correctly. If you do not know your CCIS Number, please contact your officer.
Properly filling out your payment and Payment Voucher will ensure that your payment is processed on a timely basis. Not following proper payment procedures will result in delays in processing your payment, which could result in your payment being late.
Here are examples of a properly filled out payment and Payment Voucher for John Q. Public. When you fill out your payment, be sure to CLEARLY PRINT your name, your address, your CCIS Number and your ZIP (do not write in the sample information used for this example).
Also, be sure to separate the Customer's Receipt from the money order and keep it for your records.
Do not send anything other than your Ohio Department of Rehabilitation Corrections Fee. All other items should be sent directly to your officer or the proper location. If you are unsure of the correct location, please contact your officer. Some examples of items that should NOT be sent to the processing address:
DO NOT SEND pay stubs for employment verification
DO NOT SEND a note for your officer
Pre-printed remittance envelopes are provided for your payments. If you do not have any envelopes, you can request more from your officer or pick them up from any Department office. Not having a pre-printed envelope is not an excuse for not mailing in your payment on time. If you do not have one of the pre-printed envelopes, you can send your payment in a regular envelope to the fee payment center at:
Ohio DRC Fee Payment Program
PO BOX 94596
Cleveland, OH 44101-4595
This toll-free number can be called 24x7x365. This automated system can provide you with the following information:
Your current balance
Your last payment received
The due date for your next payment
You also have the ability to make a payment during your call.
There are a number of explanations for why your payment may not have posted to your account:
- Have you allowed enough time for the payment to be processed?
Please allow at least 5 business days from the day you mailed your payment.
If your payment has not posted, wait three days and call back. If your payment still has not posted, there may be other problems.
- Did you follow the proper payment procedure?
If you did not write the correct CCIS Number and your ZIP on payment AND the Payment Voucher, the processing of your payment could have been delayed.
- Did you clearly PRINT all information?
We do the best we can to read what you write but we need your help.
CLEARLY PRINTING all information will help us process your payments in a timely manner.
- What if you did everything right?
On some occasions, there can be payment processing errors. If you believe this to be the case, please call the Support Line and be prepared to provide the following information (you should allow AT LEAST TWO WEEKS before contacting support regarding a possible problem with a payment):
Date you mailed the payment or confirmation number of electronic payment
Exact payment type
Serial number of payment
If the matter cannot be resolved with this information, you will need to have the agency that issued the money order run a trace to see if the payment has been cashed.
- If it has been cashed, you will need the information from the BACK of the money order. This information is the bank's internal tracking number and should enable us to locate the payment and credit your account.
- If the payment has not been cashed, you can request a refund from the issuing agency. Note: there are usually time restrictions on how soon the agency will issue a refund. The USPS, for example, will not issue a refund until 60 days have passed from the date the money order was originally purchased.
If you believe you are entitled to a refund from one of your accounts or if you believe your payment was applied to the wrong account, you will need to contact your officer. Refunds are issued by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections.
