My husband always request unemployment benefits on Sunday & never gets his payment in two days. He just requested payment Monday & it's now Saturday & they still haven't processed his payment yet. We have bills to pay & kids to feed. He has been receiving benefits for 3 months & they always seem to be dragging their feet to process it.

If anyone is currently on unemployment, how long did it take for you to get your debit card after you signed up for benefits? The website says 7-10 business days. I was wondering if it really takes that long or does it take longer?
i applied more then 4 weeks ago and just got my card 1 week ago, but it has no funds on it..I have been on line numerous times but it says that my card is not valid and when I call they tell me to go to the unemployment office, but we have no unemployment office in my state..I went to the closest dept. of labor office they said they do not deal with that and that unemployment has no offices, that I have to go online..What can I do to get my funds???

I applied for unemployment at the end of June, I got my phone interview at the end of July. The card will come to you no matter what, but you have to be approved and have your interview before the funds will show up. Plus you have to wait one waiting week before you get your first pay.

Unemployment is not a form of welfare as it is not NEED BASED. It is a right for people who become unemployed at no fault of their own. Employees pay a little into it, and employers pay into it based on the amount of lay offs they are responsible for.

The fact that it is not need based means that you can have $1M in the bank, lose your job at no fault of your own, and still receive benefits.

You cannot receive welfare with $1M in the bank.

Well in state of SC I received my card in abt 7 days phone interview 2 wks after being discharge and the job is not protesting or fighting my unemployment however this is the eighth wk of being unemployed and no benefits.. I feel like this whole process is ridiculously too long and inappropriate. How do you expect ppl to survive I have 5 yr and a household to maintain. Yes I am seeking employment but its hard the state of SC needs to do better

The tax money you pay is to pay the employees that work for the UE office silly.. Your previous employer is the one that pays the state to pay you.. Think of it like you would the Goodwill Foundation. They sale things but are a nonprofitable organization. well the money they make is not for profit but solely to pay their employees and still donate to the needy. Geez everyone somehow has to throw in their two cents about how this and that is or isn't welfare and thats my tax money.. Sorry if you just figured out that that is the price of living in this beautiful country.. TAXES! DOn't like it go vote next week dear.

Who ever thinks unemployment is a form of welfare they r wrong. I worked and payed taxes and I got lauded off do to the season. I have bills,rent to pay and kids to feed.I'm not getting foodstampes to feed my kids I have to pay for it with the money from unemployment that I payed taxes on all yr long on. So if I need unemployment to survive for the time being,so b it .

It could take 1 or 2 weeks. I filed for benefits 3 months ago and they approved it but when my benefit week started they said I had to wait a week to receive a payment 3 weeks later I have a payment but no card. When I called customer service they said that after the first payment I had to wait 8 days before I would receive the card. My car payment is now 3 months behind so I told them they would see me on unemployment for a long time if my car gets repossessed. They have been messing with me since day 1 and I was terminated for being pregnant!
