Payment Options

How will I receive my benefits?

You will receive your UC benefits via debit card or direct deposit. You are encouraged to set up direct deposit into your bank account. To set up direct deposit, you will need your account and routing information, including your bank's address and phone number.
 
It will take approximately four weeks for your direct deposit to begin. In the meantime, you will be issued a UC debit card through which you can access your benefits. You will not receive paper checks.
