The EDD Debit CardSM allows customers to receive their benefits faster, easier, and more secure. It also provides customers with a direct deposit transfer option once they have received their card.
Customers receiving UI benefits will continue to receive printed checks until they are automatically identified to be switched over to the new debit card service. Due to system limitations, we can not inform individuals ahead of time when the switch will occur for them.
Customers will receive the following separately:
- An Electronic Benefit Payment Notification letter when they are being switched over to the card.
- A claim form without a check attached.
- The card itself within approximately three to five business days of receiving the notification letter.
