​Direct Deposit FAQs

In light of the federal stimulus legislation, this guidance is under review and will be updated when guidance is released from the federal government.

To combat fraud attempts, claimants who filed for PUA benefits and initially requested Direct Deposit will be receiving a U.S. Bank ReliaCard instead. Additional information is available in the PA Treasury’s Important Information for PUA and PUA-related FPUC Notice.

The ReliaCard will arrive in a plain envelope, with a postmark from Indianapolis, IN. You should be careful not to discard this piece of mail.

If you wish to receive payment by check, please visit the Treasury website and provide the information requested there.
