5 2009 NASACT Conference Visa Confidential5 In the News Its In The Cards – Providence Journal – 01/26/07* Rhode Island is the first state in New England and the ninth nationwide to adopt a payment-card system for unemployment insurance, said State Department of Labor and Trainings director, Adelita Orefice. The payment cards are more reliable than paper checks, she said, because paper checks can get lost or stolen and, if disaster hits, they may never make it into the recipients mailbox. We process over 600,000 checks a year, Orefice said at a news conference. But as was demonstrated during the hurricane in Louisiana, she said, these checks are useless in a disaster. * http://www.projo.com/business/content/BZ_CHECKFREE26_01-26-07_D6440SH.d5c21a.htmlhttp://www.projo.com/business/content/BZ_CHECKFREE26_01-26-07_D6440SH.d5c21a.html Having the debit system along with direct deposit of child support funds into a parents bank account has saved the attorney generals office $6 million since 2005 due to added efficiency and less paperwork… – Janece Rolfe, public information officer for the Texas attorney generals child support division Debit Card Program Appeals to Thousands – The Facts.com – 02/08/07
