Bob Mendte, President of InsurCard, spoke before the South Carolina Workers Compensation Debit Card Advisory Committee on September 23, 2015. His remarks emphasized the advantages to injured workers of receiving payments via reloadable debit cards:  immediate payment, no lost checks, funds easily accessed using ATMs, bank withdrawals and point of sale purchases.

The South Carolina Workers Compensation Committee voted to recommend changing Regulation R67-1602 to include the option of receiving benefits through electronic payment systems. State approval is anticipated in 2016.
