Additional information on the debit card on EDD website here
When will I get my Bank of America debit card?
You will receive your BofA EDD pay card within 10 days of your first weeks PAID status. EDD does not send out paper checks anymore without making a special request
How long will funds appear on my debit card after I certify?
It typically does not take long -- one or two days, BUT! If you are certifying for MORE than the normal 2 weeks (say you have to certify for multiple weeks since your claim FINALLY went through) then you need to expect a little over a week for ALL of that to process.
Do I call Bank of America or EDD about my card?
If it directly related to your bank account, debit card, or transfers you need to call Bank of America. EDD can only help you with your claim specifically.
The debit card should be automatically issued after you are paid, but there is a way to check if it's actually been issued out. The day after your weeks show paid on the EDD website (first certification only) you can call 1-866-692-9374 and request what date the card was issued. This normally happens the same day of approval if early enough in the day.
How do I register online for the EDD debit card?
Once you receive your EDD card you will register your card either via the web or by the phone number on the care received.
