Alabamians receiving unemployment benefits will soon be getting new debit cards.
The Alabama Department of Labor (ADOL) said in a news release the agency is changing service providers and will be mailing out new cards in January.
All recipients currently using a debit card will receive a new one. Recipients who are receiving benefits via direct deposit to a personal bank account will not be affected by this change
ADOL strongly encourages unemployment recipients to ensure that the Department has a valid, current address on file and any updates are made prior to January 1. Changes may be made by calling 1-800-361-4524 or by visiting https://labor.alabama.gov/uc/ICCS/default.aspx and selecting “change personal information.”
