In Case You Missed It: RI Unemployed Hit by Big NY Bank Fees

Saturday, March 15, 2014

 

"In Case You Missed It," GoLocal's weekend feature, puts the week's top stories in one easy place for you to review and read. Check out what dominated the news cycle this week in Providence and get all the details with these easy links.

State of RI Slams Unemployed with High Fees Tied to JPMorgan Chase

A New York-based bank with no branch locations in Rhode Island has saddled recipients of unemployment benefits with hidden credit card-style fees as much as five times what state officials say they should be, a GoLocalProv investigation has found.

About a fifth of all Rhode Islanders on unemployment receive their benefits through an electronic payment card (EPC) similar to a debit or credit card that is issued by JPMorgan Chase Bank. The cards are meant to provide easy access to benefits for thousands of recipients, in most cases with no fees and, in the few instances where a fee is charged, the maximum would be $5 for teller withdrawals at a bank, state and JPMorgan Chase officials said in interviews.
