You need to make ajax call to a custom controller action and do the dispatch event there as below:

In app/etc/modules/MyCompany_Ajax.xml


In app/etc/code/local/MyCompany/Ajax/etc/config.xml


In app/code/local/MyCompany/Ajax/controllers/AjaxController.php

class MyCompany_Ajax_AjaxController extends Mage_Core_Controller_Front_Action
    public function paymentAction()
        $paymentMethodStatus = $this->getRequest()->getParam('is_active', false);
        //The $args variable may differ based on what values you are expecting in your observer.
        $args = array ('is_active', $paymentMethodStatus);
        Mage::dispatchEvent('payment_method_is_active', $args);

In you template file:

$("#paymentCheckBox").live("click", function(){
    var isChecked = $(this).is(":checked");
        type: "POST",
        url: mycompanyajax/ajax/payment,
        data: { 'is_active' : isChecked},
        success: function(data) {
            //Handle if you return something
        error: function() {
            alert('Something went wrong');
        complete: function() {
            alert('Its done');
