When you apply, you choose how you want to receive your benefit payments:
You can change your payment method by logging in to your account online or by calling the automated phone system.
It is your responsibility to monitor the balance in your account to avoid overdrafts.
The unemployment debit card can be used, with no fees:
You should receive the card in a plain white envelope about five to seven days after your first payment is processed. Once you receive your card, deposits are made within three business days after you request a benefit payment. Keep your debit card when you return to work, it can be used for future unemployment benefit accounts for up to three years. Read the cardholder agreement included with your card for terms, fees and conditions.
