CalDOR Payment Card (CPC)

Welcome to CalDOR Payment Card!

The Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) is excited to announce that the new CalDOR Payment Card is now available for Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) consumers!

This new payment card method will provide VR consumers with a quick and easy way to pay for the authorized goods and services needed to achieve Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE) goals. The CalDOR Payment Card can be used for in person or on-line merchant purchases quickly, easily, and confidentially.

"We are thrilled to be the first vocational rehabilitation program in the country to simplify our service delivery for people with disabilities," said DOR Director Joe Xavier. "With this card, our consumers can do something as routine as buy a book for school or tools for a training program either online or in a store quickly, and just like anyone else. It is another step towards ensuring that people with disabilities have equitable and inclusive access in all aspects of their lives."
