LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Claimants with the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation will no longer use Bank of America debit cards.

Nevada DETR announced they will move from Bank of America to the Way2Go Card Debit Mastercard.

Unemployment Insurance (UI) claimants will begin receiving their new green Way2Go cards throughout the month of June. Nevada DETR said claimants should activate their Way2Go Card immediately, even if there's no funding yet on the card. Benefits won't be deposited on the new Way2Go Card until early July.

Claimants will receive correspondence on the new cards via email, mail and the online claimant portal regarding the debit card transition. Claimants should continue to use their current debit card as they normally would until funds are added to the Way2Go cards.

Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) claimants with direct deposit won't see any changes.
