Unemployment FAQs

Unemployment Benefits and Tax Information

How is the amount of my benefits determined?

When you file an initial application, your work history will be reviewed to determine if you have earned enough wages to qualify for unemployment.

If you have earned enough wages to qualify for benefits, you will be entitled to receive regular unemployment benefits for those weeks when you are either totally or partially unemployed and meet all requirements. We determine both your weekly benefit amount (WBA) and your total benefit amount (TBA) based on the wages you earned during your base period.

To qualify for benefits you must have been paid wages from insured employment in at least two quarters with the total of your wages being at least 30 times your WBA. Insured work is work performed for employers who are required to pay unemployment insurance tax on your wages.

What will my Weekly Benefit Amount be?

If you are eligible for regular unemployment benefits, weekly benefit amounts for claims effective before July 1, 2021 will be between $125 and $503 per week. For claims filed on or after July 1, 2021, weekly benefit amounts will be between $135 and $540 per week. You will be notified of your weekly benefit amount through a monetary determination, which will be issued after you file an application for benefits. If you want an estimate of your weekly benefit amount, we recommend using our benefits calculator at GetKansasBenefits.gov. You may also be eligible to receive an additional $300 per week from the federal government in addition to your Kansas weekly benefit amount until September 4, 2021.

When does my Benefit Year begin?

The Benefit Year begins when your claim is effective. Your claim is good for one year starting with this date.

Is there a waiting week?

Yes. The waiting week is the first weekly claim filed that the claimant is eligible for unemployment benefits and this week does not pay. The claimant serves one waiting week per benefit year.

The waiting week is resuming for any claims filed after June 15, 2021. The Order was in effect starting March 14, 2021 and is reinstated June, 15, 2021. For claims filed between

Please continue to file for unemployment benefits as soon as you become unemployed. Your claim is effective the week you file and the waiting week will be served for the first eligible week of unemployment.

My Benefit Year ended, but I’m still unemployed. Do I need to reapply?

Yes, if your benefit year has ended and you still need unemployment benefits, you must file a new initial claim on the GetKansasBenefits.gov website to reestablish a new benefit year. Your monetary entitlement is active for only that year. When you file for a new benefit year, it will be reviewed as a new state unemployment claim and KDOL will determine your eligibility for either state or federal benefits. This process of determining may take a few days and claimants will be notified via mail. In the interim, continue to file your weekly claims if you are not working or are working reduced hours.

What is the Weekly Benefit Amount?

The Weekly Benefit Amount is the amount of unemployment insurance benefits you are eligible to receive each week before taxes and other deductions, if it is determined you are eligible to receive unemployment benefits.

What is the Total Benefit Amount?

The Total Benefit Amount is the amount of unemployment benefits you are eligible to receive during your benefit year, if it is determined that you are eligible to receive unemployment insurance benefits. Divide your total benefit amount by your weekly benefit amount to calculate the approximate number of weeks of unemployment benefits available to you.

What is the Average Kansas Rate?

The seasonally adjusted, three-month average unemployment rate in Kansas at the time your claim is effective.

Will the weekly and total benefit amount showing on my monetary determination include the additional $300 authorized under federal law?

No, the amount will show only your state entitlement. The $300 will be paid in addition to those amounts.

Can I work part time and receive benefits?

You may receive some benefits for a week in which you work less than full time and earn less than your weekly benefit amount.

You may earn up to 25 percent of your weekly benefit amount (WBA) without a reduction to your unemployment benefits. Any earnings over 25 percent of your WBA will be deducted from your unemployment benefits on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

You must report your gross wages (wages before deductions) and not your take-home pay. This includes any wages received as a Reservist for weekend drill and annual training participation.

All wages from employment must be reported during the week when the wages are earned, not when they are received.

Will other income impact my benefits?

Vacation, holiday, bonus, and separation pay may reduce or delay your unemployment benefits when paid. If you receive these types of pay while claiming unemployment benefits, you must report this information when you file your application and weekly claim for payment.

Certain retirement pensions will reduce your weekly benefit if the employment you are receiving the pension from is also your base period employment (the first four of the last five completed calendar quarters).

Examples of pensions that may reduce your benefits include:

  • Military retirement
  • Private employer pension
  • Federal civilian pension
  • State, county or city pension

Note: Social Security benefits will not reduce your weekly benefit amount.

What if I have been ordered to pay child support?

If you are responsible for court-ordered child support payments and are in arrears, the Kansas Department for Children and Families will initiate an order to take part of your unemployment insurance benefits.

Initially, the order will take 50 percent of your benefits each week.

For more information please call the Child Support Call Center at (888) 757-2445.

The Kansas Department of Labor cannot assist in answering any questions about child support cases.

The $600 FPUC payments will also be deducted for Child Support.

What happens if I am overpaid unemployment insurance benefits?

If you receive benefits you are not entitled to, you are required to repay the benefits, even if someone else made the mistake that caused the overpayment. When a potential overpayment is detected, we may ask you to provide information as we investigate. If an overpayment has been established, we will mail a notice of determination explaining how the overpayment occurred, the amount overpaid and how to repay the amount due. If it is determined that a claimant received more money than they were entitled to, their case is turned over to the Asset Recovery unit to collect the debt. You may contact the Asset Recovery unit at (785) 296-3609 to make arrangements to repay an overpayment. You may repay it in a lump sum or by making payments. If you believe that the notice is incorrect, you have the right to appeal.

You may pay it back in a lump sum, or you can request a payment plan to pay overtime.

If you are still claiming benefits, your overpayment will be deducted from your weekly unemployment payments until the overpayment is repaid. This means you will be without unemployment benefits until the overpayment is paid back. In addition, any state tax refund you may be due will be applied to the overpayment in each year an overpayment remains. It is to your advantage to repay overpayments as soon as possible.

Kansas law requires that we collect interest on your overpayment, which over time will increase the amount you must repay.

The $600 FPUC payments will currently not be used to offset overpayments.

Are my benefits taxable?

Unemployment insurance is taxable income and must be reported on your federal and state income tax returns.

If you want to have taxes withheld from your weekly unemployment benefits, complete the authorization form Agreement to Withhold Federal Income Tax from UI Benefits for federal withholding and Agreement to Withhold Kansas Income Tax from Unemployment Insurance Benefits for state withholding and send them to the Unemployment Contact Center as directed on the forms.

In January IRS Form 1099-G will be mailed to you stating the amount of unemployment insurance benefits paid to you during the previous year as reported to the IRS.

Can someone apply for benefits if their hours are reduced?

Yes, they can apply, and our staff will then determine whether or not they are eligible for benefits. Working less than full time may still be considered unemployed depending on the amount the individual earns. If they are eligible, their weekly benefit amount will be reduced in accordance with the amount of earnings. It is important that claimants accurately report their earnings when filing their weekly claims.

If an individual has multiple jobs, can they still claim unemployment for the loss of a job?

Yes, they can apply, and we will determine whether or not they are eligible for benefits. We know people are holding more than one job at a time. We will look at the weekly benefit amount and how much is earned and the hours of work at the other job to determine eligibility. If they are eligible, their weekly benefit amount will be reduced in accordance with the amount of earnings. It is important that claimants accurately report their earnings when filing their weekly claims.

What if someone did not work before their current job?

To be eligible for unemployment benefits, an individual must have worked sufficiently within the last 18 months. The individual can apply for benefits, and KDOL will determine whether they have sufficient earnings during that time period to be entitled to benefits.

How will I get paid?

You must file a weekly claim for payment for each week you want to receive benefits. Payments will be made if all eligibility requirements have been met. Your claim becomes inactive if you have not filed a weekly claim for payment or had any other activity on your claim for 14 calendar days. Claims will be paid by debit card or direct deposit depending on which option you selected when filing your application for benefits.

When will I be paid?

If there are no issues on your claim, payments are normally received two to three business days after you file your weekly claim.

Please note: If you file your weekly claim on Sunday or Monday, the payment is typically issued on Tuesday. Allow 2 - 3 business days for payments to be deposited.

Benefit payments will not always be deposited in your debit card or bank account on the same day each week. They may be delayed because of holidays or temporarily held while an issue is being investigated. You must file your weekly claim while any investigation is in progress.

How can I find out if my benefit payment has been issued?

You can obtain information concerning the status of your claim anytime online by selecting the CHECK YOUR CLAIM STATUS option, or by selecting option "1" through the weekly claim phone line. You will be able to get information about:

  • The last three weeks you claimed.
  • Date and amount of your benefit payment and the amount of benefits remaining.
  • If a benefit payment was not issued, the system may be able to tell you the reason.
  • If the amount of your benefit payment is reduced because of earnings, pension, child support deduction or any other reason, the system will tell you the amount of the deduction and the reason for it.

What is the Unemployment Debit Card?

Important Notice: Starting July 20, 2021, unemployment benefits will be issued on the new U.S. Bank ReliaCard®. Any remaining funds on the Bank of America debit card will not be transferable to the new ReliaCard.

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 U.S. Bank, 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 U.S. Bank ReliaCard® website provides detailed instructions on how to use your card.

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 U.S. Bank at (866) 335-1653 to double check if they already have a card and/or if a replacement card is needed.

Is the Unemployment Debit Card a credit card?

No. It is a prepaid debit card. The card carries no credit line and you are not subjected to a credit check or approval process to receive the card. Purchases and withdrawals are limited to the balance on your card, similar to a checking account or a gift card.

If I receive a debit card, does that mean I have met the unemployment benefits eligibility criteria?

Receiving a debit card means your first benefit payment has been approved. Getting a debit card does not guarantee that you will continue to qualify for unemployment benefits and payments. You should continue to file a weekly claim. If you have any questions, visit GetKansasBenefits.gov for more information on your claim.

Important Reminder: It can take more than one week after processing the first payable week for you to receive your debit card.  Choose direct deposit in payment options for quicker access to your first payment.

How can I access my unemployment benefit funds through my debit card?

To access your funds, you can:

  • Make purchases through signature or PIN-based transactions
  • Get cash back at store point-of-sale locations
  • Funds from an eligible fee-free ATM, as identified by U.S. Bank
  • Transfer funds to your personal bank account through U.S. Bank
  • Obtain cash through bank tellers at any participating bank

Important Note Regarding ATM Withdrawals: There is a fee for non-participating ATM withdrawals and international withdrawals.

It can take more than one week after processing the first payable week for you to receive your debit card. Choose direct deposit in payment options for quicker access to your first payment.

Where can I get cash with my Unemployment Debit Card?

You can receive cash back at select retail point-of-sale merchant locations. You can also withdraw funds with no fee at any U.S. Bank in the U.S.. Check out usbankreliacard.com for a list of surcharge-free ATMs.

Important Reminder: It can take more than one week after processing the first payable week for you to receive your debit card. Choose direct deposit in payment options for quicker access to your first payment.

I haven't received my Unemployment ReliaCard® yet.

If you opted to received your UI benefits on the U.S. Bank ReliaCard® but have not received the card yet, please do the following steps to check on the status of your card.

  1. Check the status of your card on the U.S. Bank ReliaCard® website.
  2. If you're unable to locate the status of your card log into your GetKansasBenefits (GKB) account and make sure you accepted the disclosures in the "Payment Options" tab.
  3. Make sure the address on file is the most current one we have.

If you have done the steps above, please call the Unemployment Contact Center.

Can I access the entire cash amount of my unemployment benefit payment on the day the funds are available on my debit card?

Yes. The total amount is available for withdrawal on the day of payment. However, there may be a $1,000 daily limit set on ATM cash withdrawals. Please note that some transactions, such as use of your debit card at a gas station, restaurant or hotel, may cause a hold on an amount of your card for up to several days. Some ATMs set limits on the amount that can be withdrawn at one time.

Can the Contact Center help me manage my payment information?

No. Only you can access your payment information on GetKansasBenefits.gov to manage the payment of your benefits. All inquiries regarding direct deposit must be made through your banking institution.

How do I set up direct deposit?

Log in to your account on GetKansasBenefits.gov and select Payment Options. Select direct deposit and fill out the required banking information.

Sample check that explains how to read the Routing Number, Account Number and Check Number from the bottom of the check

Can I split my weekly unemployment payment to go to multiple accounts?

No. Payments can only be deposited into a single checking or savings account.

Will I be notified when funds are deposited in my bank account?

No. You will not receive a notification from the Kansas Department of Labor. Some banks do offer notifications for your account but you would need to contact your bank.

What if the KDOL website shows my weekly unemployment payment went through but my bank does not have a record of the deposit?

Once we have issued payment you will need to contact your bank if you have questions about your direct deposit.

If their GetKansasBenefits online account says we have released payment and they have direct deposit, the call center will not be able to assist them any further with their payment. Once we release the payment, it is up to their individual banks to release the payment to their account.

How do I change my payment method from direct deposit to a debit card or from debit card to direct deposit?

Through your account on GetKansasBenefits.gov.  Log in and choose payment method. Then select the option you wish to choose and provide any required information.

Claimants can switch between debit card and direct deposit. If they were signed up for debit card and 2 payments were made there, then they switch to direct deposit, the first 2 payments will stay with the debit card. Future payments will be direct deposited.

Are there any fees associated with having my weekly unemployment payment direct deposited?

How often will I need to update my direct deposit information?

Any time you file a new or additional application for benefits you should review your banking information for accuracy.

Multiple weeks have paid, why haven’t I received a card yet?

Claimants questioning where their payments are if multiple weeks have paid out, need to double check the day their payments were released.

For example, there are some claimants who had weekly claim payments for weeks ending 3/21 and 3/28, but the payments were not made until this week. The 7-10 days for a debit card will not apply until this week when the payments were made, even though the “weeks claimed” are much older.

Where can I find the forms to print off for income tax withholding?

Refer to the state and federal income tax withholding form (K-BEN 233) below. This form can be completed on your computer, printed and then mailed or faxed to the Unemployment Contact Center.

I faxed/mailed in my withholding forms. Did you receive them? You are not withholding any income taxes from my weekly payment.

Once we receive your form(s), we will send you notification in the mail verifying that we have received your withholding form.

Will you go back and withhold income taxes from prior weeks that have already been paid?

No, we will only begin to withhold income taxes as of the date we process your request(s). If you have not been using withholding, we strongly recommend you set aside 3.5 percent for state income taxes and 10 percent for federal taxes from your weekly benefits check in order to fulfill income tax obligations for this year.

Will the amount being withheld be reduced if I only receive a partial payment?

Withholding amounts are based on a percentage of your weekly benefit amount even if you are only receiving partial payments. Although you may be receiving a reduced weekly benefit amount, the withholding amount will be 3.5 percent of your weekly benefit amount for state withholding and 10 percent for federal withholding if you have completed both forms.

Will you send me the tax withholding forms?

We will not automatically send out income tax withholding forms.

What is the amount you will withhold for Kansas State income taxes; for federal income taxes?

We will withhold 3.5 percent of your weekly benefit amount for state income taxes and 10 percent for federal income taxes. For example, if your weekly benefit amount is $200 we will withhold $7 for Kansas income taxes and $20 for federal taxes.

Will I need to fill out a form to start or stop both Kansas and Federal income tax withholding?

Yes, you will need to complete the form above to start or stop withholding.

Can I elect to only withhold Kansas income taxes?

Can I elect to only withhold federal income taxes?

How to Select Direct Deposit for Unemployment Payments

If you had to apply for unemployment by phone because you don’t have a New Jersey driver’s license or state ID, you didn’t have a chance during the application process to designate direct deposit as the method for your payments from the state and federal unemployment systems. You can do this after you create an account at mygovernment.nj.gov. But to create an account, you have to first create a PIN (Note: this is NOT the same PIN as you may have created to file an unemployment claim. You need to create a new PIN to set up this account).

You will need to take the following steps: 1) Check your claim status; 2) Create a PIN; and 3) Create an online account where you can designate direct deposit.

Step 1: Check Your Claim Status

You first have to make sure your claim has been filed. This may take a few days if you were only able to enter your information through the automated phone system. To check the status of your claim, follow these instructions from UHR. You can’t select direct deposit until the status of your claim is “Filed.”

Once your claim is filed, you can follow the instructions for the Interactive Voice Response system or online (see instructions below) to create a four-digit PIN that will allow you to select direct deposits for payments.

Step 2 for the Interactive Voice Response System: Create a PIN

You will need to use one of the phone numbers listed on this webpage in the “To certify for (claim) benefits” section. You can call any number during business hours (8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) Monday through Friday. Only people whose Social Security number ends in an odd number can certify on Monday, and only people whose Social Security number ends in an even number can certify on Tuesday. Anyone can certify by phone Wednesday through Friday.

When you call the number during business hours on the correct day, choose English or Spanish, then press 1 (for regular unemployment), then enter and confirm your Social Security number. You will be prompted to create a four-digit PIN, then prompted to confirm the PIN.  

IMPORTANT: Once you create your PIN, hang up. Do NOT answer the seven certification questions.

NOTE: We have deleted an alternative section for creating a PIN using NJDOL’s online system, because so many faculty reported problems with using it.

Step 3: Create an Online Account

Wait to use your PIN until the next day so the information is entered throughout the system.

The next day, go to “Create an Online Account” page at the myunemployment.nj.gov. From there, you can create a new account (or log into an existing one if you already created one). Choose the option to add/change direct deposit and follow the instructions from there.

Millions of workers have filed for unemployment insurance benefits as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. If you’ve lost your job or a portion of your income, you can apply for benefits through your state unemployment program, and if you qualify, you have options for how you can receive this money.

In most states, you can receive your money either on a state-issued prepaid debit card or by having it directly deposited into your own bank or credit union account or onto an existing prepaid card. In some states, receiving paper checks is also an option. While the majority of workers who are eligible for unemployment benefits have already filed as a result of COVID-19, many states will allow you to make changes to the way you receive your benefits.

Ways to receive unemployment benefits

Here are the most common ways to receive your unemployment insurance benefits:

Check the website of your state’s unemployment office because the options and processes for signing up can vary, and due to the coronavirus, it may be difficult to reach a customer service representative for additional support.

Direct deposit to your own bank account or prepaid card

Similar to how you may have used direct deposit to receive your paycheck, you can have your money automatically sent to your checking or savings account or a prepaid card that you already own.

What you need to know

  • Benefits go directly to your own bank or credit union account (checking or savings) or prepaid card
  • Access your benefits same as you already do with other money in that account
  • Benefits are sent to your account for free

What to watch out for

  • Look closely for this option when filling out unemployment forms
  • People without their own bank account or prepaid card must open one to take advantage of this option

With direct deposit, you receive your money quickly and safely, and you can manage your unemployment benefits just like any other funds in your account. It also eliminates the risk of paper checks getting lost or stolen, as well as the need to physically deposit or cash it at a bank or credit union.

If you prefer to use a prepaid card, direct deposit is generally an option, but you’ll want to check first with your card provider to find out if your card is eligible to receive direct deposit. If you don’t already have a bank or credit union account or prepaid card, you’d need to open a new account first, which many financial institutions are allowing you to do online.

To sign up for direct deposit, check with your state’s unemployment program. The process differs by state, but you can search the website or find this information when you log into your account. Look carefully for the timing of when to sign up: this could be either when you apply, are approved, or begin receiving unemployment benefits.

No matter what state you live in, the following information is typically what’s required for signing up:

  • Name(s) on the account
  • Bank or prepaid card account number
  • Bank or prepaid card routing number
  • Type of account (checking or savings). For prepaid cards, select ‘checking’

State-issued prepaid debit card

Most states currently provide the option for you to receive your unemployment benefits through a state-issued prepaid debit card. States, however, can’t require you to receive unemployment benefits on a state-issued prepaid debit card, so be aware that you do have options.

What you need to know

  • You will receive a free card by mail and then need to activate it
  • Benefits are automatically loaded onto your card
  • Faster and safer than a paper check
  • Benefits are loaded onto your card for free

What to watch out for

  • Review card information about possible fees
  • You can’t load your own money onto this card
  • Benefits will be reloaded onto the same card

Similar to direct deposit, your benefits are loaded onto your card and will be reloaded onto the same card each payment cycle. In general, it functions like other prepaid debit cards you may have used, except you can’t load your own money onto it.

Although these cards are provided by the state, they’re managed by a financial institution, which is usually a bank, and the bank’s logo may appear on the card. As a result, you may have access to the bank’s online and mobile tools to help you manage your money, but be aware that you may also incur fees for certain types of transactions, such as withdrawing funds from an out-of-network ATM. The state unemployment program is required to let you know what the fees are for the state-issued prepaid debit card before you choose to receive your benefits through the card. You can also expect to receive important information on other terms and conditions when you receive your card.

Paper check

Some states also allow you to receive your funds by paper check. If you prefer this option, check first with your state unemployment website to confirm it’s available to you and to learn how to sign up.

What you need to know

  • Check can be cashed or deposited into your own account

What to watch out for

  • You may pay a fee to cash your check if you don’t do so at your bank
  • Once deposited, it might take a few days before all your money is available for use

Remember, checks can take a few days to arrive so this may not be the best option if you need funds quickly. If you have your own bank or credit union account or prepaid card, you may be able to use a mobile banking app to capture an image of the check and have it deposited into these personal accounts. Otherwise, you may need to make a trip to a financial institution to cash or deposit it, but be aware that it may take a few days until all the money appears in your account and is available for you to use.

Watch out for potential unemployment scams

During times of emergencies and natural disasters, the rates of scam activities increase. It’s important to stay vigilant and aware of scammers who may pretend to be a government agency in order to gain access to your personal information.

Possible scams include emails, texts, phone calls, or social media messages that appear to come from the U.S. Department of Labor or your state’s unemployment office, asking you to verify your personal information, including your name, Social Security number, or bank account information. Scammers often also ask for up-front fees in order to process your payments or application.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) warns that fraudsters may also try to file false claims to receive unemployment with your personal information.

If you think you may have been a victim of unemployment filing fraud, the FTC asks that you:

Effective May 1, 2014, the State of New Jersey mandated that all State employees enroll and be paid using Direct Deposit.

With Direct Deposit, your paycheck is electronically transferred to your designated bank account(s) at 9:00 a.m. on payday. Direct deposit provides assurance that your pay will be in your bank account as of the bank opening on payday even if severe weather such as a snowstorm or other circumstances prevent you from picking up your pay check. The program is safe, convenient and free.

The Human Resources Department is pleased to announce that effective Monday April 19, 2021, employees will be able to update their Direct Deposit information directly in Workday.  You will now have the ability to add, remove and change accounts quickly and securely without contacting the Payroll Department.

Who can initiate this process?

Active Montclair State University employees enrolled in Duo two-factor authentication will have access to update their payment elections in Workday. Student employees are not eligible to complete this process in Workday and will have to submit payment election forms directly to Payroll. New hire employees cannot complete their Payment Elections until their first day of employment.

How Do I Enroll In or Change Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit Instructions:

Once the funds are returned, a replacement check will be issued to the employee in the upcoming payroll.
Q: If I sign up for Direct Deposit, how can I be sure no one will have access to my account?
A: Direct Deposit is a confidential way to send and receive payments. Although the Office of Payroll Services does have a limited ability to reverse your Direct Deposit payment, it can only access funds for a limited time that were deposited in error.

How Unemployment Debit Cards Work

When you receive unemployment compensation, your benefits may be paid via a debit card (also known as a direct payment card or electronic payment card). The card will be provided to you by your state unemployment office. It will be mailed to you once your claim is approved.

Options for Receiving Unemployment Compensation

When you file for unemployment, you will be advised of the different options available for receiving benefits. Most states no longer issue paper checks because it is far less expensive to process benefits electronically.

In the states that have gone electronic, options for receiving unemployment benefits include having a direct deposit transferred straight to your bank account or having your benefits added to a bank debit card. For example, in Connecticut, claimants have two options for payment: direct deposit or a debit card.

How Unemployment Debit Cards Work

After you sign up for benefits, your card will be mailed to you. Once it's received, you will need to activate it and set up a PIN in order for it to receive funds from the government. You'll receive your funds according to a schedule determined by your local unemployment office.

If your state unemployment office provides a debit card, it will work just like any other bank debit card. You will be able to withdraw cash at an ATM machine of your choice and use your card for purchases at stores.

You can also pay bills with your debit card. For example, you may be provided with a Chase Visa card, a KeyBank debit card, a Bank of America Mastercard, or another bank-issued card. When you use your card, it won’t be apparent to the department store or your dry cleaner that it’s an unemployment payment card. Your card will be similar to a personal debit card.

In addition, you may be able to transfer funds from your unemployment debit card directly to your bank account via a direct deposit transfer if you want to pay your monthly bills that way. Check with your local bank to see if they provide this service.

How Often You'll Be Paid

Payments are typically made on a weekly or biweekly basis depending on your location. To find out how to sign up for (or change) your unemployment payment option, check with your state unemployment office.

What to Do if You Don't Receive Your Payment

If your payment is more than a few days late, call your unemployment office. They will be able to provide you with information as to whether or not your payment has been processed and what to do if your payment is delayed or there's been some kind of issue.

Most states have a special number to call for debit card problems.

What to Do if You Lose Your Debit Card

What second harvest food bank lafayette la you do if you have lost or misplaced your unemployment debit card? If your debit card is damaged, lost, or stolen, check the FAQ section of your state unemployment office for instructions on how to get a replacement card. For example, in California, there's an 800 number to call to get a replacement card mailed to you.

How to Avoid Unemployment Debit Card Scams

Unemployment debit card scammers are thieves who target unemployment recipients in order to get their hands on their funds.

The good news is, you can protect yourself. Unemployment offices do not ask for your personal information once your claim is set up. Therefore, most likely you're dealing with a scammer if you receive a phone call, email, or text message requesting the following information:

  • Social Security number
  • Bank card/direct payment card number
  • Direct deposit account number
  • PIN

To protect your privacy, do not provide any of the above information to a third party.

Unemployment FAQs

Unemployment Benefits and Tax Information

How is the amount of my benefits determined?

When you file an initial application, your work history will be reviewed to determine if you have earned enough wages to qualify for unemployment.

If you have earned enough wages to qualify for benefits, you will be entitled to receive regular unemployment benefits for those weeks when you are either totally or partially unemployed and meet all requirements. We determine both your weekly benefit amount (WBA) and your total benefit amount (TBA) based on the wages you earned during your base period.

To qualify for benefits you must have been paid wages from insured employment in at least two quarters with the total of your wages being at least 30 times your WBA. Insured work is work performed for employers who are required to pay unemployment insurance tax on your wages.

What will my Weekly Benefit Amount be?

If you are eligible for regular unemployment benefits, weekly benefit amounts for claims effective before July 1, 2021 will be between $125 and $503 per week. For claims filed on or after July 1, 2021, weekly benefit amounts will be between $135 and $540 per week. You will be notified of your weekly benefit amount through a monetary determination, which will be issued after you file an application for benefits. If you want an estimate of your weekly benefit amount, we recommend using our benefits calculator at GetKansasBenefits.gov. You may also be eligible to receive an additional $300 per week from the federal government in addition to your Kansas weekly benefit amount until September 4, 2021.

When does my Benefit Year begin?

The Benefit Year begins when your claim is effective. Your claim is good for one year starting with this date.

Is there a waiting week?

Yes. The waiting week is the first weekly claim filed that the claimant is eligible for unemployment benefits and this week does not pay. The claimant serves one waiting week per benefit year.

The waiting week is resuming for any claims filed after June 15, 2021. The Order was in effect starting March 14, 2021 and is reinstated June, 15, 2021. For claims filed between

Please continue to file for unemployment benefits as soon as you become unemployed. Your claim is effective the week you file and the waiting week will be served for the first eligible week of unemployment.

My Benefit Year ended, but I’m still unemployed. Do I need to reapply?

Yes, if your benefit year has ended and you still need unemployment benefits, you must file a new initial compass scores online on the GetKansasBenefits.gov website to reestablish a new benefit year. Your monetary entitlement is active for only that year. When you file for a new benefit year, it will be reviewed as a new state unemployment claim and KDOL will determine your eligibility for either state or federal benefits. This process of determining may take a few days and claimants will be notified via mail. In the interim, continue to file your weekly claims if you are not working or are working reduced hours.

What is the Weekly Benefit Amount?

The Weekly Benefit Amount is the amount of unemployment insurance benefits you are eligible to receive each week before taxes and other deductions, if it is determined you are eligible to receive unemployment benefits.

What is the Total Benefit Amount?

The Total Benefit Amount is the amount of unemployment benefits you are eligible to receive during your benefit year, if it is determined that you are eligible to receive unemployment insurance benefits. Divide your total benefit amount by your weekly benefit amount to calculate the approximate number of weeks of unemployment benefits available to you.

What is the Average Kansas Rate?

The seasonally adjusted, three-month average unemployment rate in Kansas at the time your claim is effective.

Will the weekly and total benefit amount showing on my monetary determination include the additional $300 authorized under federal law?

No, the amount will show only your state entitlement. The $300 will be paid in addition to those amounts.

Can I work part time and receive benefits?

You may receive some benefits for a week in which you work less than full time and earn less than your weekly benefit amount.

You may earn up to 25 percent of your weekly benefit amount (WBA) without a reduction to your unemployment benefits. Any earnings over 25 percent of your WBA will be deducted from your unemployment benefits on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

You must report your gross wages (wages before deductions) and not your take-home pay. This includes any wages received as a Reservist for weekend drill and annual training participation.

All wages from employment must be reported during the week when the wages are earned, not when they are received.

Will other income impact my benefits?

Vacation, holiday, bonus, and separation pay may reduce or delay your unemployment benefits when paid. If you receive these types of pay while claiming unemployment benefits, you must report this information when you file your application and weekly claim for payment.

Certain retirement pensions will reduce your weekly benefit if the employment you are receiving the pension from is also your base period employment (the first four of the last five completed calendar quarters).

Examples of pensions that may reduce your benefits include:

  • Military retirement
  • Private employer pension
  • Federal civilian pension
  • State, county or city pension

Note: Social Security benefits will not reduce your weekly benefit amount.

What if I have been ordered to pay child support?

If you are responsible for court-ordered child support payments and are in arrears, the Kansas Department for Children and Families will initiate an order to take part of your unemployment insurance benefits.

Initially, the order will take 50 percent of your benefits each week.

For more information please call the Child Support Call Center at (888) 757-2445.

The Kansas Department of Labor cannot assist in answering any questions about child support cases.

If you believe that the notice is incorrect, you have the right to appeal.

You may pay it back in a lump sum, or you can request a payment plan to pay overtime.

If you are still claiming benefits, your overpayment will be deducted from your weekly unemployment payments until the overpayment is repaid. This means you will be without unemployment benefits until the overpayment is paid back. In addition, any state tax refund you may be due will be applied to the overpayment in each year an overpayment remains. It is to your advantage to repay overpayments as soon as possible.

Kansas law requires that we collect interest on your overpayment, which over time will increase the amount you must repay.

Your Complete Guide To Direct Deposit

Over the past 20 years, direct deposit has gone from being a perk to the default for most workers. But just because direct deposit is ubiquitous doesn’t mean everyone knows all the ins and outs of this payment method. So it’s a good idea to make sure you understand just what you can expect and how you can get the most out of it.

Here’s everything you need to know about using direct deposit.

What Is Direct Deposit?

Direct deposit is a fully automated method of handling transactions. When receiving a direct deposit, the payer issues an electronic payment that is automatically transferred into the payee’s checking account. There is no need for a physical check or for either party to visit the bank for the money to transfer.

This payment method has become very common in recent years, with nearly 94% of U.S. workers receiving their paychecks via direct deposit, according to the American Payroll Association’s 2020 Getting Paid in America Survey. Since direct deposit occurs automatically, it is more convenient for the employee, who can count on their paycheck arriving on payday without having to lift a finger, and more economical for the employer, who does not have to spend money to print and distribute paper checks.

How Does Direct Deposit Work?

Here’s how the direct deposit process works:

An employer starts by collecting the banking information—including bank account number and bank routing number—of its employees and vendors. This is part of the information that your employer likely gathered from you during your onboarding process after you were hired.

Let’s say this employer makes payroll payments on the 15th and last day of every month. Generally, one or more business days prior to payday, call bank mobile vibe customer service company will send its payroll instructions to its bank, which then passes that information to the Automated Clearing House (ACH). The ACH operator sorts the ACH entries 5th third bank customer service phone number ensures that each instruction is routed to the correct financial institution for each employee’s paycheck.

Upon receiving the ACH instructions, the employees’ banks then process the payment and credit the employees’ accounts with the necessary funds.

Who Offers Direct Deposit?

Many people associate direct deposit with payroll. After all, switching over to an all-electronic system saves employers both money and time, so that is where most people first see direct deposit offerings. However, you can sign up for direct deposit payments from more than just your employer.

In particular, the U.S. government prefers to pay citizens via direct deposit rather than paper checks. Since 2013, all Social Security benefits have been paid via direct deposit or a prepaid debit card. Similarly, you can choose to have your tax refund electronically deposited into your bank account rather than wait for a paper check, which can take up to six weeks to arrive.

In addition, many private companies, independent vendors, utilities, leasing agents, charities and other organizations offer direct deposit both as payers and payees. It is entirely possible that you can eliminate nearly all paper checks from your financial life by using direct deposit.

How to Set Up Direct Deposit

The process for setting up direct deposit is basically the same, www walmart money card customer service matter the payer. Here’s the process you will follow to get your own direct deposit payments:

  • Fill out the direct deposit form. Your employer (or other payer) will ask you to complete a direct deposit form that will ask for several personal details, including your name, address, Social Security number and signature for authorization of the direct deposit.
  • Include your account information. In addition to the above information, the most important data on the direct deposit form is your bank or credit union account information. Specifically, you will need to provide your bank or credit union routing number and account number, or else your employer will not be able to initiate the direct deposit.
  • Deposit amount. Usually, the deposit amount equals the amount of your check. However, you may have the option—for example, with a paycheck—to deposit a percentage into your checking account and a percentage into your savings.
  • Attach a voided check or deposit slip. Though you generally provide your account information on the direct deposit form, you will also often need to attach a voided check or deposit slip to ensure that the payer is connecting to your correct bank account.
  • Submit the form. Considering how much sensitive information is included on a direct deposit form, it’s important to take care when submitting the form. If you work in a traditional office, it’s a good idea to hand this form directly to your payroll department. If you are submitting such a form remotely, use a secure file transfer service, rather than simply emailing it.

How Long Does Direct Deposit Take?

The big selling point of direct deposit is the time it saves you. This process means you don’t have to make a bank of america battlefield blvd chesapeake to the bank every time you get paid.

But exactly how fast is this kind of payment? The actual time frame for the money to hit your account depends somewhat on where the money is coming from.

To start, the ACH transfer process can sometimes take up to four business days. However, employers will generally initiate the ACH transfer far enough in advance to ensure that the money shows up in the employee’s bank account on payday.

Many employees can expect payroll direct deposit to arrive in their account at midnight the day before the pay date. You may receive your money well before you arrive at work on payday. This is true even if you are out of town or otherwise unable to get to work on payday, since the direct deposit is automatic and requires no input on your part.

Payments from the federal government are similarly systematized so that beneficiaries can know exactly when to expect their payments. For instance, Social Security benefits arrive in your account on the second, third, or fourth Wednesday of each month, depending on your birthday. (If a payment date falls on a national holiday, then your benefits are deposited the business day prior to the holiday.)

For other types of direct deposit, you can generally expect the funds to arrive within one business day of payment, although they can sometimes arrive the same day. And since direct deposit is not usually subject to a bank hold, you can begin using the money as soon as it arrives in your account.

Uses and Benefits sign up for direct deposit unemployment Direct Deposit

In addition to payroll, direct deposit can also be used for the following purposes.

Independent Contractors

An independent contractor is a self-employed individual who performs “work for hire” for a client. The client is not legally an employer and therefore is not required to withhold taxes from the contractor’s pay. Additionally, the client pays the contractor upon receiving an invoice, rather than on a regular payroll schedule.

Traditionally, independent contractors are paid via check, but setting up direct deposit for such workers can be mutually beneficial for the workplace and the contractor. It ensures that the contractor’s payments, which tend to be irregular, are at least transferred directly rather than requiring a wait for the check to arrive, be deposited and then cleared. Paying contractors via direct deposit also reduces payroll costs for the employer, as it reduces the need for cutting checks for payment.

Social Security Benefits

As of 2013, all Social Security benefits are paid to beneficiaries via direct deposit. By switching to a direct deposit system, the Social Security Administration estimated a savings of $120 million per year, adding up to $1 billion in savings to taxpayers over the past decade.

Unfortunately, the direct deposit system does not work for beneficiaries without a bank account. Such beneficiaries receive their payments through a prepaid debit card.

Child Support

Direct deposit can be a simple, convenient and secure way to receive child support payments. Generally, parents receiving court-mandated child support will sign up for direct deposit through their state. With a direct deposit option, there is no waiting for paper checks in the mail, and there are no fees associated with receiving the payment. Direct deposit also makes it easy to track child support payments, as you can easily track and search for payments via your bank’s online portal.

Tax Refunds

According to the IRS, the fastest way to receive a tax refund is by filing electronically and opting for direct deposit. More than nine out of 10 refunds that combine e-file with direct deposit are processed within 21 days, while paper checks can take much longer. In addition, the IRS will allow taxpayers to direct deposit their refunds into upwards of three separate bank accounts, which means you can easily place your money exactly where you want it to go, without lifting a finger.

Paying Bills

Some recurring bills, federal reserve bank of atlanta careers as rent or utilities, can be paid via direct deposit. Generally, banking customers will set up this kind of direct deposit with their bank via the institution’s “bill pay” option. This is often the only way to set up such a direct deposit, since it may be difficult otherwise to get the direct banking information for your recurring bills.

Is Direct Deposit Safe?

Safety is a common concern with direct deposit. But this method of payment is generally one of the safest methods of receiving payment.

Direct Deposit vs. Check

Unlike a direct deposit, cash or a paper check can be lost or stolen, and someone can fraudulently cash a check not made out to them. If you lose a paper check, the issuer will often charge you a fee to reissue it. If your check is stolen, the process to get your payer to issue a stop payment can be arduous and expensive.

Direct deposit does not have any of these potential safety issues. Since the money transfers automatically from the payer’s account to your account, it cannot be lost or stolen. In fact, the Social Security Administration boasts that not a single payment via direct deposit has been lost since 1976, when beneficiaries were first offered the option to receive direct deposit.

Ultimately, the biggest potential safety issue with direct deposit occurs when you are setting it up. Making certain that your bank account information goes to the correct party in an organization you trust—via a secure channel—can help ensure the safety of your direct deposit.

Reasons to Make the Switch

If you are still receiving paper checks as payment, there are a number of reasons to consider making direct deposit your payment method of choice.

Automated payments are much more convenient than paper checks. Even with mobile check deposit technology’s making a trip to the bank unnecessary for deposits, you are still stuck waiting for your paper check to arrive before you can put it in your account. In addition, a deposited paper check may need extra time before it clears your account. Your direct deposited funds will be available immediately.

Going digital by us bank hours las vegas up for direct deposit also saves money and resources. The payer does not have to cut paper checks and mail them, which reduces payroll expenses and is better for the environment.

This reduction in paper waste is also beneficial for the payee. Rather than having to hold on to years’ worth of old paper pay stubs in an overflowing file cabinet, your electronic records can be digitally stored.

Digital payments are also more secure than paper, since they cannot get lost in the mail, misdelivered or fraudulently cashed. So long as you are cautious while initially setting up your direct deposit, you can trust that this method of payment will not go awry.

Finally, direct deposits quickly complete transactions. Rather than waiting for paper checks to arrive, be deposited and clear the bank, a direct deposit gets the money to the recipient quickly and efficiently, meaning transactions are cleared sooner.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How do you void a check for direct deposit?

With a pen, you will write the word VOID across the front of the check in large letters. This will prevent anyone from filling out the check and attempting to cash it.

Maryland Department of Labor Announces Direct Deposit Payments Will Be Available for Unemployment Insurance Claimants in April 2021

Fast, Safe, and Convenient Way to Receive Benefit Payments

Convenient

A claimant’s benefit payment will be automatically and directly deposited into their account every week that they request benefits and are determined eligible to receive payment. There will no longer be a need to keep and retain a separate debit card for benefits. Claimants can easily access and spend their benefits directly from their personal bank account.
