The Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) is committed to delivering premier service to its customers. With this in mind, DWD makes all unemployment benefit payments through Visa® debit cards instead of paper checks. From the convenience of your home, you can transfer funds from your card into your personal savings or checking account over the phone. Your money will be in your account in 24-72 hours. These transfers are always free of charge. If you need immediate access to your funds, you can use your debit card at a number of Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) or at any Visa® bank, with one transaction each benefit week allowed free of charge. Your debit card can also be used as a “point of sale” transaction at any merchant that accepts Visa®. The debit card system enables you to get your benefit payment more quickly because there’s no need to wait for your check to be sent through the mail, as the funds in your account will be electronically uploaded each week that you are eligible for unemployment benefits. Your deposits are posted at 5:00 p.m., on the banking day after your payment processes. DWD is pleased to offer you the convenience and security of Visa® debit cards.
