CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Tennesseans can receive their unemployment benefits electronically, starting Tuesday.

The State's Department of Labor and Workforce Development now offers debit cards and direct deposit.

The new options will be offered to newly unemployed workers as they apply for benefits.

If you already receive unemployment by mail, you can apply for a debit card or direct deposit online.

State leaders expect the move to save more than three million dollars each year.
