The Unemployment Debit Card is one way for unemployment claimants in Kansas to receive unemployment benefits. A card will be mailed to your home address when your first payable week is processed. Through Bank of America, the Kansas Department of Labor (KDOL) deposits your unemployment benefit payments onto your card, making cash available to you through ATMs, MasterCard member financial institutions and other locations, such as grocery stores, that accept MasterCard debit cards. The Frequently Asked Questions on the Bank of America Debit Card Customer Service Center website will provide detailed instructions on how to use your card at www.bankofamerica.com/kdoldebitcard. IMPORTANT REMINDER: It can take more than one week after processing the first payable week for you to receive your debit card.
If a claimant selects debit card, but has a previous debit card from filing for UI before, the payments may be loaded to the old card. They can call Bank of America 1-844-484-0046 to double check if they already have a card and/or if a replacement card is needed.
