By signing this Authorization Form, I consent to the policy of the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) for recovering money sent to me in error. Money sent to me in error, NOT repaid within 30 days of notice of overpayment, will be withheld from future child support payments. I authorize the financial institution to accept the deposit for my account and to make adjustments to my account to correct any error relating to the deposit. I agree and understand that this authorization for direct deposit revokes OAG form 1A004, Authorization For Release of Information with respect to redirection of child support payments. This Authorization form will remain in effect until revoked by me in writing or canceled by the financial institution and supercedes any existing instructions concerning my child support direct deposit. I also understand that I have a responsibility to provide a written request to discontinue direct deposit. To discontinue direct deposit and provide a mailing address for future payments I must call 1-800-252-8014 to request an Authorization Form, or execute OAG form 1A004 if payments are to be directed to a person other than myself. The Authorization form should be returned to the TXCSDU, P.O. Box 659400, San Antonio, TX 78265. I agree that the TXCSDU will have no responsibility for personal checks written against my account prior to the funds being available in my account, and my account will be administered in accordance with the rules and regulations of the financial institution.
