Unemployment debit card

Unemployment is not FOOD stamps. It's real life money, also accepted and 100% legal to use on WHATEVER THE HELL you wish. If that happens to be a tattoo, then so be it. Just like with real cash (which it is) when you're running low on it, a tat may not be the best purchase to consider, whos to say though? I buy weed with my unemployment, so consider that.

I worked at a place for m10 yrs and they fired me for no fault of my own.Now unemployment is there for people that are done wrong by there jobs.I look at it like this when you get unemployment the company you worked for has to pay more tax on that that is there fault so they should get over it they should not do there employees wrong.

after you switch from direct deposit to the debit card do the system automatically send you out the card.

trixie it does take two days this is my second year with the card. my call in day is monday and my money has always been there on wednesday morning at 8am. and i also agree if you or your friend wants to get a tatoo or anything else with the money it's they're own business. unemployment is not welfare, taxpayers are not paying for it, the employers pay into a fund that the benefits are drawn from. hope i helped.
That's why there's no jobs for people who actually want to work

Unemployment benefits ARE a form of welfare. It's a government system that forces one group of people to give money to another group of people.
As a (very) small business owner with no employees, I still have to pay Federal Unemployment taxes, as well as State Unemployment Taxes ever quarter. I make less than $30k a year, so I'm far from wealthy.
And even as a tiny business, I have to figure taxes into my prices. If I didn't factor unemployment taxes into the cost of goods sold, the business would lose money. If you think bigger businesses are simply "eating" the cost of unemployment, you are naive. They pass that cost on to the consumer.
Another thing you're not considering is the taxpayer money required to fund Federal and State Unemployment programs. Who do you think is paying the salaries of those government employees? The taxpayers. A lot of government work goes into processing unemployment claims.
If you think that leaching off the government is a victimless crime, you are sadly mistaken. Currency does not generate itself. The value of money results from hard work. So, if you're getting money without working, you can be sure someone else IS working for it.
Something YOU failed to consider is that for all you know this person has worked long enough and paid enough into system that in reality all they are doing is getting back what the government forced them (us) to pay into unemployment from our their hard work and labor to begin with.
I have nothing for those who leach of the system, such as those who claim every living relative they have as a dependent for welfare and food stamps, but what really gets me are people who think they are better than others. I am sure if we poke into your personal choices in life, we are going to find a few things we don't agree with also.

Dear trixie in regards of using taxpayers money for ur tattoo unemployment to pay for. Tattoos u disgust me. Its people like you who leech of our government. And let me guess you plan on milking our unemploent system. You make me want puke you freeloading lazy degenerate. Where you born in America? If so you should be ashamed pol need ui benefits to live not to get tattoos and go out drinking. In closing I bet your last job was at McDonald's or working some BS job cause no one with a brain would exploit the system with everyone recovering from sandy u know, the hurricane where pol lost everything including there jobs. Go get your tramp stamp I'm sure it looks good on a 300lb freeloader. PS get a job even if its mopping crap cause that's what you are

I applied and when I was approved I waited 2 weeks and finally called the chase number
1 (866) 802-7011. They said I was supposed to request one?? No where on the AZUI website does it say request one as soon as you are approved.

I get the whole "I worked for my unemployment" speal. Just saying you should be smart enough to be saving that money when you dont have a job instead of spending it on weed and tattoos. Also not wasting your time of sitting through a tattoo when you should be out there looking for a job. A Tattoo should be like a treat to yourself, and you shouldn't be treating yourself for being jobless. As well as its harder to find jobs with tattoos (i'd know i've been turned down for jobs because of mine). Not to mention I cant imagine how hard it is to find a job with diry piss from smoking weed with your unemployment money. But hey your money do what you want with it, not me whos gonna have no money and no job when that unemployment runs up.
