From the date your direct deposit application is received, it takes about one week for direct deposit to be established so long as the information on the form is correct.
Once direct deposit is established payments processed by the UC Service Center will post to your bank account within one or two business days. Your claim must be financially eligible, and you must file timely before any payments are processed.
If you have payment method questions, please call the Pennsylvania Treasury Department's Bureau of Unemployment Compensation Disbursements at 877-869-1956 (toll free).
