HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Treasury Department is changing the system of debit cards for unemployment and workers’ compensation payments, a move that’s estimated to save people about $5.2 million annually.


Treasurer Rob McCord announced the changes Thursday, saying they would result in lower fees and transaction costs.


There will also be a 25 percent increase in the number of in-network ATM machines.


The Treasury Department says people who have received a card and a deposit since May should be getting a new card in the first week in March.
