Q) Need help starting direct deposit
A) To set up direct deposit for your unemployment benefits, you will need to follow the instructions provided by your state’s unemployment agency. Here are some general steps you can take:
- Log in to your account on the unemployment agency’s website.
- Look for a section related to payment options or direct deposit.
- Enter your bank account information, including your bank’s routing number and your account number.
- Verify your bank account information.
- Submit your direct deposit request.
If you are having trouble setting up direct deposit online, you may want to contact your state’s unemployment agency for assistance. They should be able to provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to set up direct deposit or help you troubleshoot any issues you may be experiencing.
For most unemployment offices you can access you account online and change your payment options. Please visit your state unemployment benefit website or call your local unemployment office for instruction. If you are still not successful, bring your bank account information (or a voided check) to your local unemployment office and have an agent make the change to your account.
