Here is a way to set up your EDD card so you don't have to keep on signing in. It's just two steps:
1. Set up auto transfer
Sign into your account: https://prepaid.bankofamerica.com/eddcard/verify/signin
Go to "My Money" and click "Transfers"
Scroll down and go to Recurring Transfer and Transfer-To Accounts
For Amount: You can choose “Full Deposit” for the full amount to be transferred or you can specify.
For When: Change to "After Each Deposit”
This makes it so every time money is deposited into the account from EDD, it will initiate a transfer.
Connect it to your bank of choice by adding the corresponding account and routing number.
When EDD deposits the money into the debit card, it will automatically be transferred to a bank account of your choice.
2. Set up text alerts
Go to "My Settings" and click "Alerts"
Add your phone number or e-mail address -- whatever you prefer for notifications.
Check off "Value Load" - you'll get a notification for when money gets deposited
Check off "Funds Transfer Requested" - and you'll get a notification when money gets transferred
That’s it!! Now you don’t have to constantly sign in and monitor your account for when EDD is extra slow in processing your funds.
