Q. How long does it take the check to get to me once it is received by the State Disbursement Unit (SDU)?
A. Generally a payment is received and processed by the SDU the same day, However, there have been peak days, usually around the first of the month, that the receipting team has fallen behind resulting in one day carryover for a portion of the receipts. Once a payment is receipted and processed, the checks are written that night and mailed to the family the next business day.
