Indianapolis - The state's computer system is causing some problems for those expecting child support checks.

The Department of Child Services says a problem with the mainframe of the state's computer system has prevented them from sending out checks and direct deposits. About $9 million in payments are affected.

The state's Office of Technology says they hope to have the problem fixed by Thursday morning. The Department of Child Services hopes to start sending out payments by Friday.

The computer crash also affected food stamps, Medicaid and the new Healthy Indiana Plan insurance coverage for low-income adults. State workers revived those computer databases Wednesday afternoon.
