In order to receive Unemployment Insurance Benefits, you must select a method of payment and there are two choices: Direct Deposit or Debit Card.
Direct Deposit is a means of receiving your benefits in your own existing bank account. If you select debit card, a third party vendor will send you a debit card shortly after your first benefit payment is made.
Due to changes in Federal Law we are now required to provide you with specific disclosures prior to enrollment in the debit card option for Unemployment Insurance benefit payments. Please read and acknowledge that you have reviewed the following attachments.
