Debit Card Program

Debit Card 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.


Please follow the links provided to learn more about how to use your Visa® debit card.



Attention: Some debit card users have received phishing emails. These emails appear to be from eppicard.com and request that you follow a link to check your information. If you follow the link you will be asked to enter sensitive information (SSN, PIN, account number, etc.). DO NOT FOLLOW THIS LINK. This email is part of a scam. It is not being sent by eppicard.com. Eppicard.com’s security has not been breached, and your personal information is completely safe as long as you don’t respond to any of these requests for information. Being informed is your best defense. See the Protect Yourself link at http://www.eppicard.com/ for ways of avoiding identity theft. If you believe your card account has been compromised, please call the number on the back of the card.
