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

Direct deposit is also available into your own checking or savings account. To enroll in direct deposit, log into your online reemployment assistance account and select the “Change Payment Method” option on the main menu. A direct deposit form is also available upon request by contacting Customer Service at 605.626.2452 or by downloading the Direct Deposit Form from our Forms page. If you complete the form you will need to mail or fax it in along with a voided check or copy of a check.
