How will I receive my benefits?

You are encouraged to set up direct deposit of your UC benefits into your bank account, although you may also receive your UC benefits by debit card. To set up direct deposit, please have your account information available, 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 quickly, conveniently and securely. You will not receive paper checks.
