Indiana's Unemployment Debit Cards Weren't Loaded with funds Today

According to WSBT, thousands of unemployed Hoosiers ran into an issue today if they tried to use their state-issued debit cards (onto which their unemployment insurance benefits are deposited).

According to the report a "computer glitch" resulted in no weekly funds being deposited into the accounts---And people weren't immediately sure when the payments would be credited to the cards... This is a major nuisance for unemployed workers looking for jobs and who may have to pay $1 for each time they check the card's balance (in excess of 1 free check/day) to make sure they can withdrawl funds)---or for some unlucky souls they tried to buy goods and were denied because of the glitch.
