Reemployment Assistance Benefits

Payment Methods – Debit Card or Direct Deposit

All reemployment assistance benefit payments are made electronically. The State of South Dakota partners with Comerica Bank to provide reemployment assistance claimants with the Way2Go Card Debit Mastercard. Your benefits will be automatically deposited to your card. When you receive your Way2Go Card in the mail, please follow the steps to activate it. It must be activated before your payments will be reflected. For more information about the debit card or to report a lost/stolen card, contact Way2Go Card Customer Service at 844.893.3123 or

To enroll in direct deposit online:

  • Go to the RA Benefits Portal and log in.
  • Click on Update Address/Payment Method (below the My Claim Status section).
  • From the Payment tab at the top, select Payment Method.

If you do not wish to enroll online, a direct deposit form is included in the claims packet you will receive. You also may download the Direct Deposit Form from our Forms page or request one from Customer Service at 605.626.2452. Once completed, mail or fax it in along with a voided check or copy of a check.
