New Debit Card Coming

Beginning June 20, 2016, the Texas Workforce Commission will be changing debit card providers from Chase Bank to U.S. Bank.  

If you are paid benefits by debit card after June 20, 2016, you will automatically receive a new U.S. Bank ReliaCard® in the mail. All future payments will be deposited to the ReliaCard. You should receive payments on your ReliaCard account within two business days after TWC processes your payment. For more information, go to Receiving Benefits by Debit Card.

Income Taxes & Your Unemployment Benefits

You must report all unemployment benefits you received to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on your federal tax return. We mail IRS Form 1099-G in January, which provides all the information you need to report your benefits.

Beginning January 15, you can find the amount of benefits we paid you and any federal taxes withheld on Unemployment Benefits Services (View IRS 1099-G Information) or by calling Tele-Serv at 800-558-8321 (select option 2). TWC staff does not have that information until January 15.
